Last day we had first rain after 3-4 months of hot&dry weather, and within 3-4 minutes a rotting smell came from nowhere. Due this smell I had running nose for a day. What might be the reason for this bad smell? Did anyone heard of this kind of problem? (or is this just some local issue related to sewage, or some animal dead body which was dry came in contact with water)
I am not referring to Petrichor, which is fresh earthly smell. And I am in India.
I hope this is on-topic here
