Sewer Gas Coming Through Sink Trap

I have a bathroom sink P-trap that seems to be allowing sewer gas to come into the room. If you leave the water running for an extended period - maybe five minutes - then the gas can be detected in the room. Would this indicate a flaw in the trap installation or a missing part? Is there anything that can be added to offer additional isolation of the sink from sewer gas?
