Halatosis: Good day;
I suggest you attempt in curing your bad breath. Most likely due to oral concerns and habits. Initially, eliminate stomach and or gut symptoms. Do you belch or burp, upset stomach after eating. Check with MD than appointment with DDS. May be poor home care, unhealthy gums, even nutritional concerns. Dentist will offer scaling and prophylaxis, home care instruction, medication and care.
