Children of this age sghould not have bad breath. There must be a reason for this. Often it is due to constant mouth breathing as a result of a blocked nose. Other possible causes are tooth decay,infected tonsils or enlarged adenoids. It would be worthwhile asking your doctor or clinic sister to see your son.
