Hello, welcome to just answer and thank you for your question.

You are having a condition known as dysguesia or having altered taste sensation.This is mostly due to diseases of the gums, teeth, sinuses, upper respiratory infections like pharyngitis or tonsillitis.

You should follow a strict oral hygiene like gargling with antiseptic mouth rinses containing chlorhexidine or triclosan.

If this does not help, you should see a dental surgeon if you do not have upper respiratory tract infections (as mentioned above).
