Also maybe you or some other doctor in the house can answer a question about salbutamol inhalers. For many days after taking a puff of one of these inhalers, when I would cough up phlegm I would get a markedly putrid odor in my nose. Kind of like battery acid, kind of like dead insects or honey but powerful enough to make me gag. The odor would die down after about a week. The puff from the inhaler itself was quite odorless and flavorless to me. It’s like some kind of junk was getting formed from the medication and/or its vehicle in my lung, and it was not getting readily cleared back out. I wonder what the odorous substance was.

Do you eat Chinese food? And I’m completely serious. I once ate some egg-drop soup that was “not right” and I had a rotten smell in my nasal passages that lasted for months.

Sorry, but I don't know.
