What causes smelling sulpher or sewage smell?

I have been sick with flu like symptoms for 3 days now. Yesterday and today it seems like all I can smell is like a sulfer or sewage smell. I thought it was something at home but, I am smelling it no matter where I go. What can this be and should I be concerned?

Hello. Welcome to hcm.
Smell from your nose even when there is no bad smell could be a infection is nose or sinuses. Rarely it can be atrophic rhinitis.
It is advisable to consult your ENT specialist who will look in to your nose if it only scabbing that is causing these symptoms or other problem.
All the best
