You are supposed to brush your teeth or at least gargle with mouthwash after using. You may have thrush. I'd see the doctor.

Re: Bad Breath from steroid inhaler???

Hi, I do brush and gargle with peroxide, but I guess i do have thrush.
I have been using the inhaler way too much during the day, but anyway I took a difulcan pill hopefully that will get rid of the thrush.

I thought inhalers caused bad breath??

Hasn;t caused it with me. And why are you using it "too much during the day?" The steroid inhaler is for set use...in others, a certain number of puffs a day. If you are having attacks or problems breathing, then you use your rescue inhaler (Albuterol or whatever) not the steroid.
