However, There are two symptoms that are all directly related to COVID-19. This is the sudden loss of smell (anosmia) and taste (touch). These symptoms disappear for most people and the smell and taste return after a while. However, there is a different symptom associated with smell and taste, which is also an indicative sign of COVID-19.
This symptom is parsimony, that is, the inability of the patient to smell the right smell of food and drink. The parsimony also affects the sense of taste and does it in the worst possible way.
Fragrance: Another symptom of COVID-19
Frostbite may occur in patients with COVID-19 after anemia, reports the Washington Post. If the sudden loss of smell and other flu-like symptoms did not convince you that you may be infected with the new coronavirus, then the taste of… oil in your mouth when you drink coffee should definitely convince you.
A 35-year-old infectious disease doctor at the University of Atlanta thought he had exceeded COVID-19. Fever, chills and severe fatigue had improved and the senses of smell and taste were returning. Then he drank a sip of red wine, but it tasted like. gasoline!
Also the aroma of cooked garlic and onions brought her anagouka. The meat began to smell rotten and he had to change his toothpaste, since its taste smelled very bad. Even her coffee began to smell like gasoline.
This is not such a rare case, as well as other patients with COVID-19 suffering from parsimony. After infection, the nose can misidentify the smells of different foods and drinks.
A study from July reported that 7% about from 4.000 individuals reported olfactory problems, which means that the number of people experiencing parsimony during COVID-19 infection may be quite high.
The cause of COVID-19 is not clear, but scientists speculate that the nerve tissue of the nose is affected. Specifically, olfactory receptor neurons must recover and regenerate before normal sense of smell is restored.
"Normally, a smell, let's say the smell of the rose, stimulates 6 neurons », said Dr.. Donald Leopold. "If you have a cold caused by a virus or if you catch a coronavirus and some of these neurons are affected, then the brain will not be able to 'translate' the smell of the rose correctly. So this will smell like something else ". Dr. Leopold is Professor of Otolaryngology at the Vermont Larner College of Medicine.
Fragrance: What "test" to do at home
Try smelling different scents, such as essential oils, at least twice a day for 10-15 seconds at a time and repeat the process for weeks. Aromas like rose, lemon, clove and eucalyptus are commonly used to practice the smell.
A simple way to eliminate unpleasant odors is to clog your nostrils with wet cotton balls during meals.. also, Drinking smoothies is another strategy that may work, according to scientists who spoke to The Post.
