I have been suffering from a loss of sense of smell for over a year now, brought on my chronic sinusitis in the sinuses where my smell receivers are. I am taking a steroid nasal spray but with limited success so far. Most days I do have a semblance of sense of smell at times, but it's not what it was.
Anyway. I stopped taking snuff in about April last year because I was noticing that it would totally wipe out my sense of smell despite using sinus washes etc. I don't know why the snuff did this, all I know is that it did do it.
I have been vaping ever since, which to be honest I don't really like very much and I would like to go back to snuff.
So I took snuff for a few days last week as an experiment, and pow, totally lost my sense of smell and it took a few days to recover.
So, I'm concluding from this that even though people say that snuff does not go into your sinuses, for some reason it is having a very negative effect on mine. I know little about schmaltzers, however because there are a lot more moist, I was wondering whether or not just placing it in the lower part of my nasal cavity might help.
I would very much welcome any opinions on this, and also some recommendations of schmaltzers to try. Thank you.
