: I have suffered fraom bad breath for more than 20 years. I'm told it stinks like the toilet. I use my bowels every day, I eat a healthy, balanced diet, I have good oral hygiene. CT scans have proved there is no problem with my oral region. I have had a hiatis hernia, and have had a gastroscopy which found ulcerative scarring which had constricted the esophagus, but that has now been corrected, and I am taking medication to control the stomach acid. I also recently had surgery necessitating anesthetic, and since then my breath is worse. People can smell me across a room! It is embarrassing and humiliating. Doctors don't seem to have a clue what to do about it. Any suggestions?
Hi.Could you have celiac,an allergy to wheat/oatmeal often experienced by Irish people?I think you might suffer from food allegies and should get tested.You might consider seeing a dental hygienist,they have some new products that help tremendously with bad breath.
