Can a stuffy nose impact your sense of smell?
Noticed you seem to be losing your sense of taste and smell? Dulled senses can be an unfortunate side effect of allergic rhinitis. Your senses can be affected by your allergy because mucus can block the airways, or inflammation can occur in the nasal passages, obstructing air flow and affecting taste and smell.
Luckily, losing taste and smell from allergies is usually temporary and tends to come and go with other symptoms. But using an intranasal corticosteroid spray (INCS), like Nasonex Allergy, can help relieve nasal congestion, giving you your sense of smell back faster.
Losing taste and smell can be a symptom of other health conditions, so always speak with your healthcare professional to rule out other causes.
