Sense of smell & Ocrelizumab

I’ve recently been started on Ocrelizumab and have noticed over the past week that my hair smells funny. At first I thought it was due to the heat and my head sweating but even straight after washing it I can smell it. I’ve been describing it like a sweaty smell or the smell of a wet dog. A couple of my friends have had a sniff and say all they can smell is shampoo. It’s really baffling me so I’m wondering is it a problem with my scalp, is it a heightened sense of smell or am I just imagining it 🤷🏻‍♀️ Would be interested to hear if anyone else has experienced something similar.
