What causes flatulence, foul nasal odor and dryness in the nasal passage?

Hello, I ve been experiencing a bad gas rotten egg order from my nose. My nose is dry I hardly have boogers ( mucus) in my nose. It s not circulating like it s supposed to. The more I think about it and get nervous the smell comes out like my brain controls it. Please any suggestions?

1. Thanks for contacting with your health concern and after reviewing your case history following is/are recommended guidelines:

i. probably you are suffering from 'atrophic rhinits' where the crusts form inside the nose and smell bad [due to loss of turbinate tissues]
ii. exposure to environmental pollutants or having history of asthma are contributory risk factors for the same.
iii. Consult an E.N.T. Doctor who may advice a CT scan to confirm the diagnosis and to check for changes in the nasal cavities, or a nasal endoscopy to rule out sinusitis.
iv. till then use saline nasal solution instead of decongestants. [i.e. daily irrigation of nasal passage is best preventive aspect] which can help prevent formation of crust and keeping the nasal lining moist
