Hi and thanks for the query.
The first thing to get ruled out here is atrophic rhinitis. It is a condition in which there is a chronic inflammation of nose characterised by atrophy of nasal mucosa, including the glands, turbinate bones and the nerve elements supplying the nose. It is most commonly seen in females.
The nasal cavities become roomy and are filled with foul smelling crusts which are black or dark green and dry, making expiration painful and difficult.
Microorganisms are known to multiply and produce a foul smell from the nose, although sometimes, the patients may not be aware of this, because their elements (responsible for the perception of smell) have become atrophied. This is called merciful anosmia.
I would suggest that you see an ENT specialist instead of dermatologists or Neurologists.
Hope this helps.
