    have you tried gargling with hydrogen peroxide-cut with water? (50/50) Do you still have tonsils? I've heard that if you do, there's something called tonsil stones that you can get. Look it up and you may have to see a doctor or dentist to get rid of it. It does or can cause very bad breath. That is what itt sounds like to me.

    It could be sinus drainage possibly from a sinus infection or from allergy.

    Have you tried irrigating sinuses using a saline solution? If not, give that a try. I use a mixture of 1 cup boiled water, 1/2 teaspoon plain salt, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda. Stir well to dissolve, strain thru clean paper coffee filter, put into nasal spray bottle. COOL saline solution before using. Lie on back with head hanging off bed and squirt a few squirts in each nostril. Turn head slowly side to side. When getting up say kkkkkkk to keep solution from running down throat. Blow nose gently as needed. My physician approved this for me several years ago.

    A few weeks ago a pharmacists wife asked me for this saline solution recipe.
