Have you ever noticed a bad smell after sneezing? Well, it can tell a lot about your health. Mind you, a smelly sneeze is normal, it’s when the smell persists over time that you have to ask a specialized medical consultation.

The sweet smelling sneezes they could be the result of chemicals produced by bacteria in the sinuses, elevated ketones (produced by the liver when there isn’t enough insulin in the body), or diabetic ketoacidosis.
Instead, one dirty smelling sneeze it is the result of a sinus infection (sinusitis). It manifests itself with an enlargement of the paranasal sinuses. Normally, sinuses are filled with air, making them a perfect site for the growth of microorganisms. One of the consequences of the infection is bad breath, so any sneeze will be malodorous.
