  • yes, a sinus infection you can smell. also you can smell a rotten tooth if it is really bad (i had one that made an abcess and boy it did smell terrible)

  • Yes! It could be sinus infection, just with very weird symptoms. I'd definitely go to the GP. Your nose and ears are all connected with your sinus cavity and the teeth and those nerves are in close proximity as well. Sounds like there's an infection, to me.

  • Yes...I have definitely had that "infection smell" when I had a sinus infection. It is gross. Makes you come to terms with the fact that you are sick real fast! LOL
