    Hey friends, I have lost my sense of smell for over six months now after a viral fever attack. Has anyone experienced the same and got relief. Had been to an ENT and a Neuro but no concrete answers from them that I will get back my perception of smell again. Please share your remedy and will be happy to give a try.

    Thanks

    Hi Joi,

    [​IMG] to IL Health Forum.

    This is quite common. The period may vary in individual cases. I have suffered this for more than one month once. So don't worry. Just keep steaming adding eucalyptus oil twice a day. Heat a tawa and place a rolled out towel over it and apply the heat on your nose & also take deep breath of that hot air by place it on your nostrils. Have a tea by boiling little jaggery, dry ginger powder & pepper and have it as it is. Never blow your nose with force. Do it gently. Don't keep taking deep breath to smell a stuff. Give your nose sometime and they will be back in action automatically. Best wishes for a speedy recovery :)
