Bowels vs. breath: I strongly doubt any association between holding your bowels and bad breath. More information is needed to figure out why you have bad breath. ...Read more

Bad Breath from....: I am a dentist and not a physician or gastroenterologist so i can only speak from that standpoint. There are many reasons for bad breath, both dental and medical. Poor oral hygiene is by far the biggest cause of bad breath. See this site for some possibilities, but also discuss your symptoms\issues with your physician. http://smilesapartcosmeticdentist.com/fresh-breath-control.htm. ...Read more

Could be your diet: I am not an expert in GI but work with a dietitian. The food you eat can potentially cause all your symptoms. Review your dietary intake. Consider a FODMAP diet (http://www.gastrojournal.org/article/S0016-5085(15)01086-0/fulltext) and try to eat healthier. Lower fats and more vegetables. ...Read more

What are causes of bad breath?

Bacteria on tongue: Bad breath is most often produced by bacteria in at the back of the tongue. The stomach rarely results in bad breath except when there are specific digestion issues. Cleaning teeth, including inbetween, and the back of the tongue with a tongue cleaner often helps reduce bad breath. ...Read more

What can be done to avoid bad breath in the morning?

It is common: To have bad breath in the morning. Brush, floss and brush your tongue and also gargle before going to bed will reduce but not eliminate this, as when we sleep salivary flow decreases and therefore bacteria build up causing bad breath. It should go away when you brush, rinse, gargle in the morning. ...Read more

Why does garlic cause bad breath?

Garlic breath: Garlic contains several sulfur compounds, which alone can cause bad breath, but they also promote the growth of oral bacteria, which may further add to the problem. Garlic lovers can absorb some of the sulfur compounds into their bloodstream & the body can exude the odor through the pores. Brushing teeth & tongue, gargling with mouthwash, eating parsley may help diminish the odor somewhat. ...Read more

How can I cure bad breath?

See your dentist: See your dentist. Have the dentist rule out decay and periodontal disease. Have enhanced hygiene-- brushing at a forty five degree angle between the tooth and the gingiva, flossing correctly, using a tongue scraper and possibly a prescribed rinse. If the etiology is not determined to be dental, a MD consult may be needed. ...Read more

I was wondering what are some reasons for atrociously bad breath in a child?

Many options: Bad oral hygiene (not regularly brushing/flossing) can be a factor, but there are other reasons, particularly acid reflux (especially if there is also nighttime cough, lots of post nasal drip, throat clearing) or certain sinus issues can also play a role. I have had some success in kids going on a dairy free diet trial for this as well. Probably best to ask your child's dentist and doctor. ...Read more
