Dear Sue

It is possible that you are suffering with a chronic sinus infection, causing the continous, smelly post nasal drip (PND). The obvious thing would be to exclude a sino-nasal infection, and this will require a full ENT examination. If that is not causing the problem, other possibilities could include dental problems, and your dentist will be able to look at that possibility.
