An effect of COVID-19 seen in many people has been the dulling or loss of someone's sense of taste and smell, with some even reporting the effects lasting well past their time of infection.
Some online accounts of the health issue explain that when they drink something like wine, the taste is now warped, even tastes like gasoline. Also, foods that people previously loved and enjoyed now smell foul to them.
Dr. Andrew Ordon, who is also an ENT doctor, explains because the virus enters our body through the nose and throat that the receptors and nerve endings that process the senses of taste and smell can be affected. He explains the health issue is called parosmia -- or the distortion of your sense of smell.
So what can people do if they are having this issue?
Dr. Ordon says, for now, patients have to give it time and wait and he says this type of issue usually self-corrects eventually. He also says possibly anti-inflammatory medications or steroids may provide some relief, or in extreme cases, he says smell training -- which is psychical therapy for the senses -- might help to retrain your sense of smell.
