Posting same Q differently- I'm suffering from bad breath. When I wake up in morning, my mouth stinks so much that I myself can feel bad breath. After brushing, immediately within hour my mouth starts stinking. I brush twice a day, I do scaling twice a year &dentist confirmed that oral hygiene is good. I have a runny nose while having my meals, my tongue gets white throughout day despite of cleaning it daily in morning &while brushing my teeth in morning also I feel that bad breath is coming from my throat. I doubt it's a nasal issue or may be tonsil stones issue. By reading above info, doctors on Lybrate suggested to hv deep cleaning, visit expert dentist, ENT specialist etc. Temporarily,also advised 2use mouthwash. I took few ml of mouthwash n kept in mouth for 10 min n spitted out. Then gargled once wit water to clean foam, also drank water immediately. I found this very effective n felt fresh breath for 10 hours. By this, wat does it indicates? ENT or dental issue? Whom shall I visit?

Dear lybrate-user, as far as what I can interpret from your description these are the few things that you need to understand: 1. Use Mouthwash twice a day and preferably do not rinse your mouth after using mouthwash a minimum for 15-20 minutes for maximum effect. 2. Use Tongue cleaner regularly. 3. Throat gargles and all have helped you because you have a runny nose (Or possibly allergic rhinitis) which keeps producing secretions in your nose and sinuses (air cavities around nose) through the day. The sinuses get filled up with them. When you sleep at night these secretions flow through the rear of your nose into throat and produce bad odour. 4. In case you have Acidity related problem (Gastritis) associated with regurgitation of food back into the food pipe while you sleep at night, can also produce bad breath. If you have this undergo treatment for this also. 5. Get your blood sugar screening done. Some of us may be diabetic. This can also produce bad breath. So please assess yourself on all these parameters to see where do you need advice and whom should you consult. Hoping that this will help you. Take care.

Usually if you a runny nose in the mrng then there a lot of chances that there is nose block at night. If nose block is there, there will be mouth breathing. This can lead to bad odour. If you say you are also getting coating of tongue, then there can be added gastric complaints (digestive complaints). If you have all these together then it's better to consult a homoeopathy Doctor who can solve the above Problem. For temporary solution you can do mouth wash daily. And also steam inhalation to clear your nose and cough.

Get scaling done from a dentist.
