I mean my cellulitis is on my chest but all I smell down there is soap and deodorant. I havenít talked to my doctor yet and I donít use tampons. I have some Flonase maybe that will help. I know a year or so ago I was smelling something that smelled like real bad body odor and it was freaking me out but then I found out it was just my sinuses.

I have never heard of an association between cellulitis an the odor of blood. That said, the human body is capable of pretty much anything. Also, if it did not start until after you began the antibiotics, that is also a possibility.

I really don't think you need to worry. If you were having all kinds of GI symptoms like belly pain that won't go away, or super duper bad reflux symptoms or any of a whole bunch of other signs and symptoms signifying something more serious, then it might be worth some concern. My money is on the antibiotic, as long as the odor started after or about the same time as you started the abx.

I'm going with the antibiotic. They can cause weird smells and tastes.

Are there any stuff made from iron around? Iron also smells like blood.

It is also possible that you got a nosebleed, but it was not too severe so the blood didn't go out through your nose. But be careful, it may be a sign of future illness. It's hard to tell because there are so many reasons for this. I agree with bpcyclist, don't worry about it too much unless there are other awful signs or symptoms. It has happened on me sometimes, and thankfully I'm still healthy up until now. Though I get actual nosebleed a few days later sometimes.

I've had that with sinus infections/sinusitis. I don't think it was actually blood, but the infection. That stuff is gross. I believe it can sometimes smell like smoke, too. It also sometimes makes my breath rank smelling. Perhaps consider calling your GP? Or if you see an ENT.

I've been dealing with sinus crap, intermittently, since I was a teenager.

I think the smell might be coming from my boots. Iíve been wearing them nonstop for about 2 months. They have this weird iron smell to them now.
