I've been in Uk for 10 years. My health deteriorated. I developed rhino sinusitis and hiatus hernia. I get lot of phlegm (mucus). I am coping with the problems but my main concern is bad breath which is present even after brushing. I brush 3 times a day and gargle mouth washes or salt water (warm). I think my bad breath comes from throat/stomach. The problem has been there for nearly 8 years. Please help. Thanks.

Bad breath or halitosis can be due to infection in sinusus, throat, lung abcess or ch lung infection, smoking, mouth breathers and indigestion. Dry mouth can also cause halitosis. Try to find out cause and treat that. Dental hyigene and floss of teath is main line of treatment.
