Permanent And Temporal Loss Of Sense Of Smell (Anosmia). How And Why It Happens

Anyone can loose his or her sense of smell temporarily or permanently.

A person can lose his or her sense of smell to the extent that when you lock the person in a public toilet, he or she cannot smell anything.

Anosmia, which is the loss of sense of smell either temporarily or permanently, could be the reason why people will alert you of a particular smell around you that you have no idea about. The experience of losing one’s sense of smell is not a good one, especially when visitors to your surroundings or apartment have to raise an alarm about certain smells around your surroundings. Learn to avoid the condition of losing the sense of smell and/or reverse any such experience, especially if it has just begun.

Anosmia, loss of sense of smell, could occur as a result of sinusitis.

Sinusitis is a result of inflammation of the sinuses. The sinuses are small air-filled pockets located between the eyes and the nose and , cheekbones and forehead. When the sinuses become inflamed, it is medically termed as sinusitis. When sinusitis occurs, the sinuses and the nasal cavities become filled with fluid, preventing the person from being able to smell anything.
