Bless me!

What is that weird smell after you sneeze? Is it stale air that's been stored in your sinus cavities? Is that the smell of snot? Is it just me?

?? I have never noticed a smell after I sneeze. Now I'm going to be hypersensative to it, to see if there really is one.

I've wondered about the smell (after sneezing) for years. I actually consulted a doctor about it (about four years ago) and he thought it could be a symptom for some disease but I've forgotten what he said. He asked me a couple other questions about it and dismissed it on hearing my answers. There certainly isn't much info available about it. I had to put the string "smell after sneezing" in quotes to find anything relevant and the only page I landed was this one!

i searched too. this is still the only page that comes up.. what the hell is it?

to me it smells like willow trees. i was watching CSI and they said that people with tuberculosis have breath that smells like wet leaves. thats VERY similar to the sneeze smell... wet leaves... it must have something to do with lung or sinus mucous....
