Top best answers to the question «Can you lose taste and smell with sinus infection»
Chronic inflammation of the nasal linings and sinuses lasting longer than three months (a condition called chronic rhinosinusitis) can lead to loss of smell and a bad taste in the mouth.
Sinus infections lead to inflammation in the nose and therefore nasal stuffiness. Many sinus infections cause either full or partial loss of smell and taste. Sinus infections are typically treated with OTC pain medications and prescription antibiotics.
