When I take a shower, I mix dettol liquid into the water and then put it in my nose, which causes me to be unable to smell, how do I treat it?
Hello Albhi, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
The nose can not smell is called anosmia, most cases of anosmia can be cured, but some others can be a sign of serious problems related to certain diseases. Anosmia that occurs in you may be caused by exposure to chemicals, allergies, sinusitis or the flu. However, there are still many causes of anosmia, including:
Nutritional disorders Congenital disorders Aneurysms and brain tumors History of brain tumor surgery History of rhinoplasty Multiple sclerosis Parkinson's Alzheimer's The aging process. If the anosmia you experience does not go away, immediately consult an ENT specialist, the doctor will perform a physical examination, interview your history, supporting examinations such as nasal endoscopy, X-rays, CT. scans, MRI. To find out the cause of your anosmia, and the doctor can treat it according to the cause, the doctor will usually give you a nasal spray that contains steroids, antibiotics, antihistamines, and decongestants.
Some suggestions for you:
Avoid exposure to cigarette smoke. Stop smoking. Pay attention to the expiration date of food, because you can't smell stale food. Set a fire alarm at home, because you can't smell fire smoke. Maintain nutritional intake. Get enough rest. Avoid stress. Eat nutritious food. Read Articles about ANOSMIA
