This is weird, and I'm not really that great about describing it, but I feel really congested recently, and if I blow my nose too much, I'll get this kind of fruity odor/taste/smell/feeling, and it won't go away for a few hours. I did some google research on it, and everything I could find related the terms "fruity nasal odor" to some type of diabetes, which just the thought of scares the ***l out of me! Can anyone here think of anything else it might be, or at least anything I can do at home to help get rid of it? I'm thinking of going to the doc sometime soon, just to make sure it's not diabetes. Please help if you can, I can't help but to freak out about it.

  • I had something like this and it turned out to be a sinus infection. Are you blowing out green, yellow or brown mucous? Mine lasted for about a month before going away- doesn't mean you shouldn't get tested for diabetes, but at least in my case it wasn't too big a deal. I had to take some antibiotics before it finally cleared up though.

Diabetes is totally reversible. Read the book "Never Be Sick Again" by Ray Francis. It describes in detail how to eat right, without being in a diet but avoid all the toxic junk that gets marketed as "healthy".You can use alternative medicine and successfully bring your body back to balance.Take Care,Eatafruit78.:D

  • I had a nose job many years ago, and the inside of the tip of the nose had a little space that collected "stuff" and sometimes smelled fruity. I had a revision of the rhinoplasty and it cured it. Perhaps your schnoz has a little space which collects also. I went to an ENT specialist. The "inside tip" revision surgery wasn't too complex.
