Why does catarrh smell?
Catarrh is produced to rid your body of pathogens, infections which enter the body through one of the 3 main interfaces. E.g the respiratory system. When the liver and kidneys cannot kill the pathogen, catarrh is produced to trap the disease, then it can be blown out through the nose, or swallowed and destroyed by stomach acid. When the bacteria pathogens become concentrated and trapped in cattarh, it may appear thick and coloured. It may also develop a smell due to the dead pathogens caught up in it. Hope this helps.

Yes Chloroform has a strong smell. Unfortunately, if you can smell the chemical, the level is too high to be safe.
1. Change clothes daily, particularly your underwear. 2. Wash your clothes regularly with soap and water. Underwear and socks should be washed separately with hot wate…r. Really dirty gym clothing should be taken through a pre-rinse first. Put a cup of white vinegar in the final rinse. 3. Shower or bathe daily using a deodorant type soap and use a deodorant/antiperspirant daily. 4. Brush your teeth twice day 5. Cut down on eating fatty and greasy foods seasoned with garlic or onion. Note that during puberty, personal odor is an uphill battle due to increased hormones. Cologne and other sprays don't really cover it up: stick to frequent washing and fresh clothing. Answer2: Drink lots of water, it flushes and cleans waste from our bodies. In addition to the above recommendations, after I put on deodorant, I pat a little baking soda under each arm, works wonderfully for controlling underarm odor. Also, when you brush your teeth use a little baking soda on the toothbrush and make sure to brush the back of your tongue. Things like vinegar, ginger, lemon and lime are cleansing. Drink water with lemon and lime, have teas with lemon. Boil cut up unpeeled fresh ginger and have hot or cold or drink ginger tea. Good health to you.
There are two possible answers to this: The source of the smell may simply be 'in your head'. If your nose and related organs have suffered some damage then it just simply go…es ahead and produces all sorts of responses to things that aren't really there. Boxers suffer from bouts of this.The human organs of smell are degenerative. This means that our distant ancestors were able to smell a lot more things than we are now. This condition has arisen through disuse. The old adage 'use it or lose it' applies in evolutionary development. Now this condition didn't come about suddenly but in scattered loses amongst the general population, and there still is a widely varying spectrum of smelling abilities amongst individuals. So, quite naturally, there are things some people can smell that others cannot. I found out that your nose never stops growing. I am 54 years old , so I can smell my dirty laundry in my small apartment.
Because your nose can smell anything, and there are a lot of weird and unusual smells in the world!

humans smell over 100,000,000 smells!
Very good thank you.
Catarrh is an old term used to refer to the symptoms of inflammation and production of increased thick phlegm and mucus in the nose and airways; a typical symptom of the commo…n cold and infections of the sinuses, tonsils, adenoids or middle ear. The word is from the Greek word meaning "to flow". It is rarely heard today in modern medicine terminology. The cure depends upon the cause of this symptom. If caused by a virus like a cold or the flu, then it is treated as those conditions are (see related questions in the related question section). If caused by infections of the sinuses, bronchitis, or other bacterial infections of the nose, sinuses and air passages, then the cure is antibiotic treatment.
Death smells different at various stages of decomposition, some describe it like rotten meat only much worse. It is not a smell you will like or will ever forget.
neither ok well whoever aked this question i wanted to say hi
Catarrhal inflammation is caused by a viral or bacterial infection. Examples of catarrhal inflammation are laryngitis, head code, upper respiratory tract and bronchitis.
Catarrh is usually caused by an infection such as the common cold. It often clears up by itself within a few days but a good cure for catarrh is to inhale the steam from h…ot water in a bowl that has been mixed with a small amount of eucalyptus oil.
I don't know that much scientifically about that, but i believe yes. I have found that to be true in my life and also I once read an article about experiments with skunk musk.… In small amounts or with a bit of a different scent mixed in with the musk, the people tested thought that it smelled good(they did not know it had any thing to do with skunk musk). However, when told that they were smelling skunk, most of them reported it as smelling very bad, even though not all of the scents actually had skunk musk in them, and some of the scents were the same as the ones that had been judged as good-smelling before. me too #yourock
As a noun, for example, the patient was suffering from a bad case of catarrh, exhibiting an increased production of mucus due to a upper respiratory infection.
Yes- the fibers in clothing can retain bad smells, so make sure what you wear has been washed before you wear it; however, clothing that is constantly exposed to strong, offen…sive odors such as smoke or oil can stay in clothing for a LONG time.
Olbas Oil or Eucalyptus oil.
