Taste and Smell Blood
NicoleLayne85 posted:
Hello for the past few months I smell and taste blood, but no blood. It just happens a few time a day, Its not caused by food I eat and it doesn't happen at a certain time of the day.

Any Ideas on what this could be. Its pretty annoying.

Thank you

My boyfriend had a blood taste in his mouth, all day everyday, a few years ago. Not sure if he smelled blood though. Anyway, he finally went to the dentist and found out he had an infection under his back tooth. He had to get a blister (or something like it) drained. The blood taste went away, but he was told to get the tooth removed to avoid anymore infections.

Hope this helps!
