What medicines have you taken for the flu?
Have you got yourself examined by an ENT specialist?
Most of the times the loss of smell and taste following flu is transient. Try taking plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and also visit an apt ENT specialist and get nasal endoscopy done to look for any clues which is causing you this problem.
