It sounds like if you are suffering from chronic sinusitis and this will have an effect on your smell. You should get an opinion from an ENT specialist for possible sinus operation after a ten to fourteen day course of antibiotics. You can also consult an allergy specialist to determine what you are allergic to. Sometimes it is possible to avoid spesific allergens and in such a manner, you can help to controle your sinusitis.

Try a zinc supplement - defciency can cause loss of smell!
