Thanks for asking the query,

I would suggest you to visit to the Physician and get a checkup done.
Foul taste in the mouth can be due to xerostomia, it can cause other symptoms like dental caries, gingival and peridontal problems.
I would suggest you to get a dental checkup done.
Take lukewarm saline and antiseptic mouthwash rinses.
Maintain a good oral hygiene.
Sip plenty of water.

Hope this helps out,
