Hi Lybrate user
Bad breath from mouth may be due many reasons, one being gum disease (gingivitis/ periodontitis). Scaling and polishing with proper brushing technique would help. Use of mouthwash also aid in preventing it.
Foul breath can be due to cavities in teeth, bleeding of gums, infected tooth or ulcer or acidity or constipation or taking cold water or cold drinks with food which delay digestion of food leading to gas formation which is either farted or passed thro oral cavity as foul breath. Get it diagnosed and treated accordingly.
