Brief Answer:
See a Dentist

Detailed Answer:

You seem to have dry mouth with no saliva coming to help you taste food. Saliva has natural antibacterial action helps to wipe of anaerobic bacteria. When this bacteria live in the mouth they give aweful smell and tastes bad.
Do you mean you have itchy scrotum as well?
Continue Esmoperazole as it helps contain the reflux acids from the stomach.
I suggest to see a dentist to check for other reasons.

Don't have dry mouth, taste food fine, saliva fine, itchy scrotum too, been on multiple medications and over the counter things for itchy scrotum and nothing helps. Seen dentist--everything fine. Smell not in mouth but comes up when I cough.

smell comes up when I cough: productive or not.

Need Dr House team to figure this out!
