Hello,

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

The symptoms seem to be related to sinusitis.
Sinusitis causes symptoms such as sinus inflammation and nasal congestion, which can interfere with a person's sense of smell.
The condition can also cause bad breath and a discolored, bad-smelling discharge in the nose and back of the throat.
I suggest to do a sinus xray and a visit to ENT specialist for further evaluation.

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Kind regards!
