My toddlers breath smells like sick, but he is behaving and eating normally. Is there anything wrong with him or is this normal?

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. I've 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.

Breath smells like faeces.

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.
