Q.

sometimes

hi doc i have bad breath but this only happens so times. i have noticed that when i do not eat or speak to any one for the whole day this bad breath thing happens and it lasts for about 3 to 5 days then im ok again. the thing that really works me up is that i happens at random times. its just that i dont like to eat in the day and if i do eat then its maybe fruit or a sami. i have ended up with mouth wash in my car so that when this does happen i can react and treat the bad breath but i connot continue like this. please help

80% of bad breath is oral/dental in origin. See your dentist for possible causes. If this persists after dental intervention, other causes need to be explored viz, Throat, GIT
