Loss of smell and taste 5 days after nasal congestion and a very bad throat....

Edited , 2 users are following.


sorry fir the rant in advance! my husband tested positive for Covid a few days back. He had a low grade fever and a cough. however 4 days later after his symptoms showed up, I started feeling sick and had a very bad throat ache, followed by a congested upper airway including sinuses.

the thing is I could still smell up until today morning and found my smell and taste gone!

will this ever get better? 😦

so overwhelmed with it all.

    First of all I think you should have a covid test done asap!

    I had covid and my taste and smell went for 8 days and then it returned. Try not to be too worried, most people's taste does return.

    Hope you and your husband feel better soon
