Hello Princess,


Thank you for the question.


The following are some of the possible causes of the decrease in the sense of taste and smell, namely:

Nasal and sinus disorders, such as allergies, sinusitis, or nasal polyps.
Certain medications, such as anti-hypertensive drugs.
Disturbances in the teeth and surrounding structures.
Hormonal changes.
Head trauma.
Smoke.

In the latest information about covid-19 disease, there are indeed reports that some patients feel a decrease in the sense of taste and odor sharpness, and this is caused by the corona virus that infects the lining of the nose and makes the lining inflamed, as in sinusitis. However this is reported in 10-30% of patients which still need further study.


Basically if there is a symptom of decreased sense acuity like that, to deal with it is by overcoming the cause of the symptoms. While it relates to covid-19, the best recommended step if you experience these symptoms is to isolate yourself for the next 14 days before other symptoms appear, and don't forget to take other preventative measures such as routine hand washing with water and soap or sanitizer , clean objects that are often touched regularly, and avoid physical contact with other people, at least 1 meter apart.


Hopefully this information can help.


Regards.
