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.

Answer . It is mucus. Usually it refers to the respiratory tract and the stuff people cough up when they have a common cold.
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.
Catarrhal inflammation is caused by a viral or bacterial infection.Examples of catarrhal inflammation are laryngitis, head code, upperrespiratory tract and bronchitis.

hey im not to sure of the answer but i think that it is what we smell is what ever is in the atmousphere because every little thing that has a smeeling side to it is being let… out into the air also like cooking every time we cook a smell goes in to the air and that is the smell we smell it wasnt created it is just formed when we do some thing to some thing even when you smell perfume it is not the same every time because if you trie to put it on some one else it would smell different because that persons skin has a different smell to your own.. how that this has helped cheers luigi567
The words you are looking for, cold and catarrh, are spelt correctly in the question.
Olbas Oil or Eucalyptus oil.

Generally, body odor is an indication that it is past time for a shower or bath. If body odor is a problem even after bathing, you may have a form of strep; a doctor can presc…ribe a general antibiotic for you, but once you are a carrier for strep, the condition will return. If this is the case, a home remedy is to take a salt bath periodically. If you try this, remember to shower afterward to rinse off the salt so your skin does not dry out and become irritated.
Catarrh is a problem for most people. Some common symptoms are Nasal Congestion, and/or congestion in throat and ears. But this can be treated easily with OTC drugs.
