Brief Answer:
Get your thyroid hormones checked...

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting the query. I'll try my best to help you out with this problem.

Hot breath could be due to various causes. To name a few:
1. Dry or hot and humid climate
2. Increased body temperature, as in fever
3. Hormonal imbalance
4. Smoking
5. Dehydration

Your history doesn't suggest of any smoking habits or fever. Hence, other causes need to be ruled out.

My suggestion to you is to consume plenty of water in the room temperature and get your thyroid hormones evaluated.

Hope this answer has been useful to you. I'll be available for the follow-up queries.

Brief Answer:
Get CT scan if the paranasal sinuses...

Detailed Answer:

Welcome back

It's good to know that your Thyroid function tests are normal.

In that case, you need to get CT scan of the paranasal sinuses to look for any sinus blockage. Sinus block can lead to mouth breathing and thus hot breath.

Wish you good luck.
