1.     Thanks for your query, I have gone through your query.
The bad breath could be because of the deposits over the teeth causing gum infection. Or it can be because of the pus discharge secondary to gum or tooth infection or any respiratory tract infection like sinusitis or gastrointestinal disorders. Consult a oral physician and get yourself examined to rule out these conditions.
if it is gum infection get the teeth cleaned once and maintain oral hygiene after that. You can use mouth wash.
if it is tooth infection get the tooth restored.
If it is respiratory tract infection consult a pulmonologost and gastro enterologist if it is a gastrointestinal disorder.
I hope my answer will help you, take care.

Thanks for consulting HCM,

Read your query , as you have bad breath dont worry this bad breath can be poor oral hygiene , drug induced , diet related , sinus related .
I will suggest you to do warm saline rinses twice daily , use chlorhexidine mouthwash once daily , maintain proper oral hygiene by brushing twice daily , use tongue scraper to clean your tongue .

Hope this will help you.

For years Ive been bloated, gassy and cramped. I cant gain weight. I wake up with gas and bad taste in my mouth. I have no sinus infections but I always have bad breath ( I brush and floss daily).
