Bad odor from nostril is commonly seen even without any pathology in the nose. Even common cold, smoking, bad breath can be the reason apart from various disease conditions such as sinusitis, polyps, foreign body etc. Consult an E.N.T. Surgeon to exclude any pathology.
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum
The bad odour from the nose could be due to sinusitis, please do consult your ENT specialist for a thorough check-up. Till then drink plenty of warm water, do steam inhalation 2-3times/day and use saline nasal drops 3-4 times/day.

I have a bad odor in my mouth. I have been to a dentist nothing is wrong with my teeth are gums. I am not diabetic. I use all kinds Of expensive mouth wash. Nothing is working! The upper part of my stomach hurts when I cough. I can not get rid of this bad breath . What could be causing this?
For the past month or so my right hand side nostril leaks 2-3 drops of clear fluid (no taste/smell) whenever I lower my head e.g. bend over, lie face down. No obvious inflamation/obstruction or recent cold, flu, or nasal/head/eye injury. I am male, mid 50's with no allergies, headaches, etc. and occassionally snore if lying on my right side (so I am told!) Septum has always been slightly 'curved' towards right hand side so nasal lining will touch sides during a cold. Non smoker. My partner cannot see any obvious nasal obstruction/swelling/lump but cannot see as far up the right nostril.
I am a 34 yr old female, and I have had pain in my left nostril for over a year now. I have to remove the crust and buildup inside my nose daily, which can also be painful and sometimes cause bleeding. I was tested for staph but that came back negative. Now I am having soreness and pressure in my teeth, and I think it may be related. Please help!
Hi. I've been experiencing having one runny nostril all the time now each day for the past 2 years. At night, I breathe through one nostril. The breathing nostril will switch depending what side I'm sleeping on. I always feel tired, as if I'm not getting good enough sleep. What are your thoughts?
