Thanks for posting your query.

The halitosis is due to factors like-

poor oral hygiene maintenance resulting in plaque deposition leading to gingivitis.

throat infection
immunologically compromised individuals.
systemic conditions like diabetes mellitus,epilepsy,hypertension.

I would suggest you to get a deep scaling and root planning done.
BRush your teeth twice daily using soft-bristled tooth brush.
Clean your tongue to prevent bacterial accumulation.
Check for throat infection.
get your blood sugar level monitored.

cHLORHEXIDINE mouthrinses can be used to gargle.

take care.
