Hello, I have been smelling cigarette smoke for the past week. I havent smoked for about 2 months now and no-one else in the house smokes, so it isnt a real smell. I dont take any medication and dont have any allergies and am otherwise fit and well. What is wrong with me? Am I going mad??
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Sometimes the smoke smell can get stuck to clothes and surrounding environment. Consider using clothes fresher or conditioner for clothes and room fresheners (after washing and drying clothes in sun). If the symptoms still persist, then you should consider getting thorough evaluation done by an ENT surgeon to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as indicated (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/ENT specialist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest.
