Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Abnormal smell can be due to the nerve inflammation in the nostrils. Also sinus inflammation can cause this. If you do not have any cough or shortness of breath, then you do not likely have pneumonia. However sinus infection is still possible if you have nasal congestion or drainage.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
