Hi..Amara.., Since the child is already examined by ENT specialist..,
no problem is detected..not worry..
when child grows adult , any nasal discharge present will stop..
and then the foul smell will not be felt..

Take care..

Hi, Amaragh,
Thanks for query.
This seems that your son might be having chronic infection in the nose or having sinuses giving rise to bad smell.
Due to chronic infection in the nose there is always congestion in the nasal mucosa giving rise to bleeding tendency.
Put nasal decongestant nasal drops like Otrivin or Nasivion.
Keep nose clean with smoothly removing crust.
Give him vitamin C tablet.
Go for x ray Para Nasal Sinuses ( PNS ) to rule out sinusitis.
Ok and bye.
