Burning nose sensation.

Posted , 6 users are following.

In early March I suffered what seemed like Covid 19 symptoms, I experienced everything that could possibly be connected with the virus but no high temperature, the temperature has remained within the operating ceiling of 34.5-35.5, I feel better most of the time but I do have my days where even getting out of bed is a chore and lethargy a major problem, the one sensation that has remained is a constant burning effect of the nose and surrounding nasal tissue, (imagine if you will someone holding a ghost chilli pepper under your nose, nothing seems to alleviate the symptoms and I'm just wondering could this be a post viral long term problem, your thoughts would be greatly appreciated, many thanks.

    Sounds like you had a mild case. Ever got tested? Writing to say I had the same sensation, it would hurt to inhale through my nose, it felt spicy. I was positive, had no fever also, but I lost my sense of smell/taste and had major lethargy. All my COVID symptoms went away in about a month, once I got my sense of smell back the burning sensation seemed to disappear too. It's funny because my allergies to my cat were also gone while I was infected, it seems to really mess with the nasal passages for a lot of people. I hope it resolves for you, the best you can do is wait it out.

      I have a similar sensation but rather than burning, it feels like a stuffy nose without any congestion. Just a weird pressure-like feeling in my nose.

      Also, loss of smell and taste.

      It's really frustrating. How long does it take to return to normal??

    Hi,

    I had a stuffy feeling in my nose but without any congestion. It just feels weird when I try deep breathing. Headaches too.

    Also, loss of smell and taste.

    It's incredibly frustrating tbh

    I'm on day 7 and still waiting for it to return to normal.

    Hopefully it'll get better soon for all of us!
