Bad breath: Many things can contribute to bad breath. It usually helps to brush the roof of the mouth and tongue. Better yet is to get a tounge scraper to clean the surface of the tongue, where lots of bacteria tend to accumulate. Patients with gum disease often have oral malodor. ...Read more

Breath smells like faeces.

Several conditions: Several conditions in the mouth can cause halitosis (bad breath), such as gum disease, dental infections, poor dental hygiene, tonsil infections, multiple oral ulcers, etc... In children (or sometimes adults), if constipation is severe, the stool can be backed up so far that there are fecal odors coming out the mouth... so an exam is needed to see what is going on. ...Read more

Ok: toddlers typically have sweet breath. Bad breath in this age is unusual. I worry about things like dental disease, tonsils or sinus disease. Kids don't have much in the way of sinuses but they do have some. Ive even had patients with bad breath who had a bead and a bean stuck in the nose unknown to the parent. Chronic colds and dental disease are the most common reasons in my experience. ...Read more
