No Medical problems. No discharge/exam. I am not imagining the smell as people notice it also.
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 5 years ago.
OK
This would be from bacteria in almost all cases,,,or an abnormality in the nasal passages causing the colonization..or both.
You need to see an ear nose and throat doctor.
They can see further into the passages..and you might have something that needs to be corrected.

Let me know if you have further questions, details or need clarification, just use reply.......
