Please see a doctor.: There are several possible causes for this and you need to be seen to be properly diagnosed. If you injured it, it may just be a bruise, but if not, it could be a twisted testicle, which is an emergent issue. So, don't delay; please call your doctor for an appointment or go to the emergency room to be checked.

Mouth breathing: You may breath through your mouth while you sleep, which dries out your mouth and throat. With a dry mouth, certain bacteria can proliferate which causes an odor. Try brushing your tongue as well as your teeth, and when you use mouth rinse, gargle it into the back of your throat as well.

Have it looked at: If it is only on one foot then there is a chance he could have a blood clot in that leg and should be looked at today. Swelling in one foot and numbness that came on all of a sudden shouldnt wait. Good luck.
