Bad Breath, yellow tongue and Irregular Stool

Hi, Glad I found this website. My age is 30 years and I am facing serious bad breath problem which is affecting in personal/profession life. Let me give you brief idea about my symptoms. 1. I am having bad breath from long time. I visited dentist few times and no help. I guess they are not able to understand exact problem and try to clean teeth’s every time. 2. The bad breath is severe when I have dry mouth , no talking/speaking with anyone while watching TV, enclosed areas (like car, meeting rooms etc.) 3. I feel nausea/vomiting during dentist visits when they ask to open my mouth for few minutes. But in few seconds I feel nausea. 4. From last two/three months, I get yellow tongue when I get up in the morning. 5. I have abnormal stools (sometimes colored stools) and sometimes anus burning. Most of times, my wife complain about bad smell after my stools. I don’t have any problem with my weight which is consistent 140 lbs from years. After reading various topics on Internet, I am now little worried whether I have some disease. Thanks, Sandy

Hello and Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for writing to us.
It can be caused by the foods you eat, dry mouth, tobacco products, or a medical disorder.
If you don't brush and floss teeth daily, food particles can remain in your mouth, which promotes bacterial growth between teeth, around the gums, and on the tongue. This causes bad breath. Antibacterial mouth rinses can also help reduce bacteria.
The treatment of bad breath depends on its cause.
maintain good oral hygiene.
brush twice daily.
use tongue cleaner to clean the tongue.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...

First of all it should be clearly understood that bad breath is due to various factors like poor oral hygiene, sinusitis, pharyngitis, gastric disorders, liver disorder, kidney disorder, dry mouth, decayed teeth, diabetis etc. If your oral cavity is fine you should consult a gastro-enterologist to determine any gastro disorders and if so get the required treatment which will solve the problem.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
It is possible that your tongue gets dry and begins to show coating of dried mucus and food particles. When you brush your teeth, you may gently brush the tongue also but not very far backside as you may feel like throwing up. Repeated cleaning of the tongue prevents bad breath. Regarding your stools you may have IBS or an infection, Get your stools examined and tested for possible parasites.
