Q.

smelly mouth &  stinky farts

Hi,

My son (6yrs) had the worst halitosis possible. I make sure he brushes his teeth b4 &  after meals &  he gargles with a mouth wash but its not helping.

Also he breaks the most foul smelling winds. Its quite embarassing somtimes. At first i thought it was worms so i de-wormed him but nothing.

I' m pulling my hair out trying to figure out a solution.

A young boy should not have problems like this. It is possible that your son may have tooth decay or an ilness such as chronic tonsillitis or sinusitis. He needs to see a dentist about his halitosis. Try him on a regular probiotic for his other problem. Use Pprobiflora Children's one tablet daily for at least 1 month. This should help a lot.
