Hi,
You should understand that malodor is caused by many reasons like decayed teeth, poor oral hygiene, gastric problems,Sinusitis, liver disorder, diabetis, smoking, alcohol consumption, tobacco chewing. If the problem is due to calculus and plaque it can be removed by scaling and polishing of your teeth. Flossing of teeth and tongue cleaning using tongue scraper should be done daily. Any systemic problem should be identified by a physician and appropriate treatment for it should be obtained.

hello,
most of the time bad breath(technically- halitosis) is due to improper oral hygiene,but since u say u have already shown to a dentist i think that aspect is taken care of.
things u can do to prevent halitosis are-
-drink water frequently(dry mouth also causes bad odour)
-gargle mouth well after eating
-avoid garlic,onions and other foods having strong pungent smells
-keep cardamom, sauf(fennel) in the mouth
try these and let me know,
take care

Hi, Recently I am suffering from having a bad breath. My dentist told me my teeth are fine and that my bad breath is probably caused by my stomach acid. A chinese doctor/acupuncturist also told me that I have a bad breath, due to my stomach is not working properly. I have noticed I have a bad breath, dry mouth and a white tongue after I have not talked for a while or after enjoyed my meal. Now I am really worried and start to link everything with my stomach, because last year I have had a stomach reflux . Additional information is that I do not smoke any tobaco, have a skinny body and I am only 22.

i went to the dr. yesterday for sore throat, body aches. was told it was not strep but viral infection. she did notice a pus pocket on the right side of my throat, I was prescribed antibiotics (Z-pack) for 5 days. My dr told me to gargle with salt / warm water. My question is should I try to remove the pus pocket myself with a q-tip, as that is what I have been reading online that several people remove the pus pocket with q-tip.

Hello. 3 days ago, I had a short-lived stomach virus,around 24 hours long, and vomited a total of 21 times, causing me to lose some weight and become dehydrated. Ever since then, I have had this continuing bad taste in my mouth. I tried drinking a lot of water, brushing my teeth and tongue constantly, and using mouth wash, but it doesn't seem to work. Originally, the bad taste originated in the left side of my mouth, along my tongue, and now it has spread to my entire tongue. I thought it may have been oral thrush, but I saw no film or change in my tongue's appearance.

I have been for the last several months over the incision were it was drained forming a pus filled pimple that will grow then pop on it owns and the cycle repeats itself. Now another pus filled pimple has grown close to it as dose the exact same thing.

He now want to remove my tonsils and adeniods, I've never had strept throat and I don't suffer from continously sore throats. Is surgery really my only option?
