Have cold and weird smell in right nostril. Am diabetic. What could it be?

I am 30 and a type 1 diabetic for the last 19 years. I recently had a cold and shortly after it I start noticing a slight weird smell in my right nostril . It reminds me of washing up liquid or bleach maybe. The smell comes and goes, It only stay around for short periods and I recently notice 2 or 3 times a day. Any idea what it could be? Thanks

Your age 30 years , diabetic since 19 years

These all finding suggestive of acute rhinosinusitis.
Just consult ENT specialist for proper antibiotic and nasal decongestant treatment and control the blood sugar strictly.
