In brief: Many causes

Many things can cause bad breath, including cavities in your teeth, periodontal problems, acid reflux, sinus infections, and diet.
Since you cannot be evaluated for all of these conditions over the internet, seek the care of a local dentist and physician who can examine you and treat you.
