have you seen a doctor to confirm a sinus infection? The smell is most likely from that. Last time I had one I got a funny smell from my sinuses. It wasn't as bad as what you are describing, but most likely is the cause.

Re: Sinus Infection Cause Rotten Smell In Nose (Mucus)

I also had dental work done then got a sinus infection with a rotten smell, almost smells like cow manure, and have just seen a doctor for it today. The doctor has put me on Bactrin for the infection so we'll see if that helps. I have never had a sinus infection in my life and the smell almost makes me want to throw up!! Hopefully this will help ease your mind. The smell should go away as the infection goes away.
