Is there any big plants or factories near where you are OP ?

Not sure where you are from but is there any oil/gas drilling occurring where you are?
We're having a major oil boom in certain parts of the US and in one region, there was a horrible H2S leak which poisoned a large area and some evacuated their homes. The specific incident was in south Texas.
Is there fracking or drilling going on in your area?

Might be a stupid question but can anyone else smell it there? Is it only outside, or can you smell it inside?
I ask because there are a few medical reasons why a person might be smelling sulphur. Just putting the possibility out there in case it's limited to your nose only.

I'm sorry but what is the logical (read critical thinking) connection that suggests that the most probable source of the smell is chemtrails?
Hydrogen sulfide is a hazardous gas with a distinct rotten-egg smell. It is found in fossil fuels, swamps, sewers and, more recently, in homes with drywall that has been degraded by moisture and humidity.

Folks, I really appreciate all these replies.
Something else I noticed yesterday, after all the rain. There were still some puddles in the garden and floating on top of them there was a petrol-like film. I don't have any petrol in the garden and haven't seen this here before, but last week I noticed in front of one of my neighbour's farm gates a lot of the same sort of film. At that time I assumed his tractor had leaked a bit - but there's no way his tractor would have got into my garden. Could this have come down from the aircraft emissions?

OP, are you detecting the rotten egg smell outside? Over a widespread area? Do you live near any faults? If you live in a relatively isolated area with little industry and urbanization, it could be tectonic activity.
Hydrogen Sulphide is a gas released by tectonic activity as any miner knows.
It was just that one time, outside in my garden. There's no trace of the rotten egg smell now, Interesting question about faults - none are recorded here, but there was a very mild earthquake just over 2 miles away a couple of years ago, which left a crack in the wall of a building and was felt by people immediately living there.
Twice since then, my dog has gone out into the garden all bouncy as usual and come back feeling drowsy and not very good. Both times she has recovered OK but I wonder whether she is drinking any of that filmy water - I keep getting rid of it but with all the rain and snow, bits keep coming back again.
