In brief: Breath stinks
The commonest cause of bad breath is gingivitis, you should consult your dentist and have that checked, there may be odour produsing bacteria in the mouth.
Avoid certain foods like garlic and onions, smoking is another cause, and gastric esophageal reflux disease and stomach ailments can rarely cause bad breath.So start with the dentist and go from there.
