Strange Smells After Covid
I had it January 20th, 2021 and my taste and smell has not yet returned 100%. In fact, some things do not even smell the same and it is really freaky. Just wondering if I am not alone. It starts with my morning coffee every day. While brewing, the coffee smells like a combination of coffee and red wine. After that the rest of the day some things bring this combination smell back. My piss and shite. Onions. BBQ Sauce. Italian salad dressing. Peanut butter. Started about a month ago and repeats every single day. Yes, all of that smells like coffee and red wine to me. So weird. frick China

You should see if your shite tastes like all of that too. For science!

re: Strange Smells After Covid
I had COVID in late August/early September 2020, and there are still a few things that don’t smell/taste like they did before I had COVID. I can smell and taste them, they’re just different.

This seems like it would be an interesting aroma to experience.

re: Strange Smells After Covid
I had it about 3 weeks ago and while my taste is mostly back (mild flavors are still somewhat subdued), my smell has hardly come back at all.

I consider not smelling poop a super power, so I'm less concerned with that than I was with taste.

Dude… exact same thing for me. I had it back in Feb 2021. There are things that all smell the same. Coffee, car exhaust, shite, lettuce, etc…

Had it in April of this year. The only thing I can say really smells different is my shite and piss. Best description I can think of is a very strong metallic smell.

This is the only thing that scares me about COVID. Still not enough to go get the shot.

Friend had it in November of last year and hasn't gotten his taste for beer back yet. He says every beer, no matter the type, has a weird metallic taste.

I had to change all my soaps and deodorant after I got my smell back. Just didn't smell the same.

May time frame and going thru 'everything smells like onions' phase as we speak. Take zinc & vitamin a to help it out, i just started that regiment because I'm going nuts

re: Strange Smells After Covid
My kid brought it home weekend before last. He tested positive on a Thursday. I tested positive for Kung Flu the following Monday and the only symptoms I've had were one day of sore throat, nasal stuffiness every day, one blast of diarrhea after eating Japanese food. Was it covid or the food, who knows? No loss of taste, smell, no headaches, no fever, any of that other stuff, thank God. Unvaccinated.

re: Strange Smells After Covid
I wonder if we eventually have a pill that restores smell/taste after COVID
