I am 25 years old. I am suffering from chronic bad breathe. I get worsen when I keep my mouth close for a long time. By afternoon I get a whitish kind of layer over my tongue and I feel like cleaning it again and again. Its ruining my social life like hell. I feel really embarrassed to consult a dentist. Please suggest a solution.

Visit a dentist for thorough check up. Mostly you require oral prophylaxis ir scaling and polishing. This will solve the problem. Maintain oral hygiene by brushing twice a day. Get professional cleaning done every 6 months.
First of all, don't embarrassed to consult a dentist, you need proper oral prophylaxis, you can use hexidine mouth wast twice a day after brushing.
First start drinking plenty of water at regular intervals. Brush twice a day n use a good mouthwash. Avoid junk, sticky n spicy food. Gargle with water every time you eat or drink something. Avoid onions n garlic in dinner. Go for cleaning of teeth once every 6 months.
