Dear Lawrence

You should see an ENT for an examination, as the cause for the mucous should be investigated. This could very from chronic infection to allergies and nasal growths, and treatment will depend on the cause. Your lack of smell (anosmia) is due to your blocked nose and correct treatment should improve this problem as well.
