What are the treatment options for anosmia?

Treatment options for anosmia can vary depending on the cause. If your anosmia is caused by an allergy or infection, your doctor can prescribe medicine to clear up your condition. If your anosmia is caused by a polyp or tumor, your doctor can remove the blockage. In some cases, such as when anosmia is caused by aging, the condition is permanent, so treatment consists of teaching coping methods. These methods may include installing smoke alarms, or having someone check for smoke or gas leaks at home.
