Will my anosmia go away?

Based on what causes your anosmia, the condition may or may not go away. Certain types of anosmia can be caused by damage to the lining of the nose. If you smoke, have allergies, or suffer from an upper respiratory illness, such as the common cold, your anosmia will go away when your illness clears up. In addition, if your anosmia is caused by a blockage, like a polyp in your nose, your anosmia will go away after a doctor removes the obstruction.
