I had a severe sinus infection that was treated with a nose spray but now gone; but now I cannot smell anything and food taste very bland. Seen my Doctor and he prescribe Prednisone; just want to know if it can help me regain my sense of smell and taste back.
Yes, it can. You have about a 30-40% chance of getting it back. Having lost your sense of smell means you are part of a large group of people, including me. Best wishes.
I think it can, sinus infection causes swelling getting it under control will sure help.
