Does smelling some food or perfume invalidate fasting?

The Details of the Question

I need to use some medication containing ethanol to improve the wounds in my mouth; is it permissible to use it while fasting?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

No. Smelling some food or perfume does not invalidate fasting.

If the medication one uses does not reach the stomach, it does not invalidate fasting only by spreading it in the mouth.
