Those who had been ill with covid told Moscow 24 about the unusual and striking consequences that have made adjustments to their personal lives. Some were disappointed in their favorite food, others stopped smelling their cats, and still others began to drive the opposite sex crazy. The most intimate details of postcoid life are in our material. "I don't smell sweat" Muscovite Yulia Kosova, who works as a tour guide, told Moscow 24 that she had been in the hospital with covid for two weeks. The first week she had a high temperature and was very weak, so even with a shower in the ward, it was physically impossible to wash. However, even after discharge from the hospital, the sense of smell did not return. Moreover, the insensitivity to the smell of sweat also manifested itself in the son of Julia, who also had covid disease. "He remembered how before his illness he smelled strongly of sweat in a warehouse where there are large loads, and suddenly found that he did not feel anything," Yulia recalls. I even had to experiment with my family with and without deodorant. A Muscovite Daria, who works as a fitness trainer in the capital, faced a similar problem. "After I had the coronavirus, I did not smell sweat at all. This is unusual because you think: do you smell or not?" - said Daria. At the same time, according to Daria, it cannot be said that the sense of smell has completely disappeared. Some even see a plus in this phenomenon: you can travel by public transport in the summer and not feel discomfort. However, both girls are rather wary of such prospects. “It scares me more than it makes me laugh, because it’s not clear what other smells I cannot feel,” Yulia Kosova noted. There is no end to men Margarita Kulikova, the consequences of the coronavirus also became unexpected. She fell out of love with her perfume. “After I’ve been ill, I just can’t smell it, it makes me sick, it hurts and I feel dizzy. I don’t use that perfume anymore, I found a new one,” the girl told Moscow 24. However, this turn of events brought Margarita a pleasant surprise - with the use of a new perfume, men began to actively show interest in her. “Men on the street, in the subway, started to approach me. When I splashed myself with a new perfume for the first time, a guy met me in the subway,” she said. Immunologist Vladimir Bolibok suggested that perhaps the disease could somehow affect the pheromones. "In the process of infection with COVID-19, there may be a change in the work of the endocrine system, in particular, it was described that the virus is secreted from the ovarian tissue. Maybe something is connected with this," the doctor said. Research has also shown the effect of coronavirus on male function. However, allergist-immunologist Nadezhda Loginina believes that it is simply a matter of a well-chosen aroma. "She changed the perfume, which turned out to be more attractive to the opposite sex. When buying a perfume, we always smell not only the offered testers, but also how this smell will be felt on the skin. These are the features of the skin," said Login. Wild food and the smell of cats After the coronavirus, many taste priorities change. What they loved madly yesterday, they hate today. Margarita, who adored all kinds of eggs and yeast-free bread, suffers greatly that her favorite dishes have drastically changed their taste. "A month after kovid, hell began for me: the eggs smell like something rotten, the smell hits the nose wildly, and the bread has become sour, like fermented kefir," the girl said. Associate Professor Yulia Artyukhova told Moscow about similar consequences.Her taste sensations began to change three months after the illness: Yulia Kosova, on the contrary, was attacked by zhor. "For me, it manifests itself in eating an unthinkable amount of vegetables. In general, I do not care what I eat: beets, cabbage, bread, cabbage soup, shrimps, tea with garlic. Though I eat not sweet, but just everything. And it is very difficult to control ", - said Yulia. At the same time, her friend after covid put on weight due to a sharp sensitivity to the smell of baking. Some covid survivors also report that they don't smell in the restroom, even from pets. They do not understand by the smell when it is necessary to wash things, and are guided solely based on the number of days of wearing. “On the one hand, it’s good that you don’t smell the smells that make you feel bad. On the other hand, you may not feel expired products,” said fitness trainer Daria. Immunologist Vladimir Bolibok said that about 2/3 of patients with coronavirus experience a loss of smell. "Some part of people, regardless of the loss of smell, experience disturbances in taste. These symptoms can be combined, can be separately," - said Bolibok. To restore taste and smell, experts recommend sniffing cinnamon, cloves, and onions as a training session in order to irritate the receptors in the nose, which will gradually recover.
