We have to evaluate for anosmia.. we have to do a direct nasal endoscopy to see ur nose for any polyps/ to inspect olfactory area. Can start on nasal corticosteroids Fluticasone furoate nasal spray 2 puff Twice a day Undergo smell sensitisation exercises… collect different types of smell and smell them regularly..for eg coffee, camphor , lemon, cloves, rose , eucalyptus … each for 10-20 seconds..

You have to get a CT scan of the nose and sinuses . Look for any pathologies like polyp or mass in nose. If so you should get treated for that. Otherwise , if it is due to post covid anodised, you can do olfactory training exercises which can be done at home . The exercise videos are available in google

For assessing Anosmia full ent examination is needed and if nothing abnormal in nose then it may be due to damage to the olfactory nerve, which is incurable rest causes can be treated
