my husband had a wisdom tooth pulled and had severe pain on one side of his face,it has been a month and a half since he has had that done.a few days after haveing the wisdom tooth pulled he started haveing a bad odor in his nose,only he can smell it i don't smell anything coming from him.it went away for a week and then came back with a headache all on the same side that he had the tooth pulled its only one side of his nose that smells and one side of his head that hurts.doctors checked for infection but said there wasn't one they want him to have a ct scan but we have no insurance and really can't afford it at the moment.if anyone has been through this and can give me any advice as to what this might be, it would be greatly appreciated.

  • sinus infection? You're better off just sending him to the doctor.

  • Infection in the socket can do this he might need some antibiotics for it he should go back to the dentist.

  • Definitely an infection, and it could be sinus, or his wisdom tooth could be infected. The mouth and nose are connected, so he could actually smell an infection in his mouth. I'd get it checked by either the doctor or dentist.

  • How long ago did the doctor see him? Maybe the meds weren't strong enough.
