Halitosis: Indefinitely is a long time, and the H2O2 may not be treating the cause.

Bacteria: There will always be bacteria in your mouth regardless of brushing flossing or mouthwashes. The trick is to keep them from sticking and colonizing your tooth and root surfaces.

Woke up with swollen lips. Used hydrogen peroxide as a mouth wash 3 days ago. What happened & what should I do?
Have large dry socket, getting repacked by dentist every other day. What kind of mouth wash can I use if any? Sal water? Hydrogen peroxide ok?
Avoid disturbance: The goal in treating a true dry socket is to manage infection and pain while the body slowly heals. Gentle rinsing with warm salt water primarily to keep food from impacting into the socket is generally ok but vigorous irrigation will further delay healing. Avoid chemicals like peroxide or alcohol and be patient while following carefully the instruction and meds you are getting from your dentist. ...Read more
I bit my tongue 3 weeks ago and sustained a cut that has not healed and does not even show a sign of healing. What can I do? I use listerine mouth wash and/or hydrogen peroxide..
See your dentist!: Tongues normally heal quickly. 3 weeks is way to long to consider continuing to treat yourself. I would not use the listerine as this is probably irritating the area. Hydrogen peroxide can leave you vulnerable to fungal infection in the mouth as well. I strongly recommend letting a dentist look at your tongue and give you the proper treatment. ...Read more
