I can't smell anymore?


Q: I got really sick a bit ago, and I couldn't eat because when I ate I felt like I was sick, but I got better from that and got a blocked nose and it was drippy at the same time, but now, it's not blocked anymore, and I can't smell anything properly! When I eat everything tastes really bad, but I can smell things if I sniff them up close. I try sniffing my food then taking a bite and at first it tastes normal but after a couple chews it's gross again, the only thing I can taste is apple juice? I'm a 15 year old female.

Symptoms:  Loss of smell
