TV presenter, MD Elena Malysheva spoke about the hidden threats that lie behind the loss of smell. About this she posted video in your Instagram.
In particular, she cited the example of the Olympic champion, world and European champion in rhythmic gymnastics Daria Shkurikhina. After suffering from COVID-19, she lost her sense of smell, and could not smell the smell in time when her apartment caught fire.
In this regard, the doctor advised people who cannot distinguish smells to install smoke detectors at home, and also to carefully check the expiration date of the products. To treat this ailment, she advised rinsing the nose twice a day, as well as using hormonal sprays. Also, she added, it is worth doing an olfactory workout: sniffing cloves, roses, lemon and eucalyptus sealers twice a day.
In early January, otolaryngologist Ivan Leskov said that the sensitive epithelium of the nose, which is responsible for odors, affected by the coronavirus, is recovering on its own. This can take two to three months, but you can spur the process with the help of B vitamins.
On December 23, it was reported that patients with mild COVID-19 are more likely to complain of loss of smell than citizens with severe infections. According to therapist Tina Petrovskaya, loss of smell indicates damage to the nervous system, while in severe patients, the lungs are most affected. However, the frequency of the symptom is not related to the severity of the disease, she noted.
