stress decreases salivation n aggravates plz avoid stress.
Also liver disorders may affect digestion of food n aggravate halitosis.
All u can do is to have a balanced diet ,plenty of water,good oral hygiene n frequent gargles.

hi welcome to HCM.
Stress or nervous tension is a major enhancer of bad breath.POOR oral hygiene also causes bad breath.
foods or substances which often cause bad breath: garlic, raw onions, cabbage, horse radish, eggs,fish,red meat,cigarettes,alcohol and coffee.
.Medical risks for bad breath include bronchial and lung infections, chronic sinusitis, post-nasal drip, tonsillitis, untreated nasal polyps, diabetes, syphilis ,chronic liver diseases etc.
as u r having history of hepatitis you consult your physician to rule out that.maintain good oral hygiene,use artificial saliva if your mouth is dry,drink plenty of water,regular mouth wash.thanx bye
