As you know, teeth plaques are not the only cause of Halitosis (Bad breath
) in kids.
It can happen due to
- Infection of the throat, tonsils, adenoids
- Infection of Para nasal sinuses
Have her examined by a Pediatrician
to rule out any such infections.
Since you say she has got a cold too, its likely to be due to some infection in the upper respiratory tract
. How ever causes of acidotic breathing also have to be ruled out. A visit to your doctor will help you out.
All the best.
