HALITOSIS

Hi Doc!

Please can you me????? i've been livinv with halitosis for a long time now and i'm too embarassed to see a doctor about. No matter what i eat, it makes it worse and brushing all the time doesn't help either. i chew bubble gum the entire day and this has also brought my confidence down as i can't go near people.

Can you prescribe something to get rid of the halitosis and if i were to go to a doctor, do i have to see a dentist or an ENT specialist?????

Thank you

Dear Anon
First a dentist to exclude any infection in the mouth and teeth. If all normal there, and you have symptoms of post nasal drip you can see an ENT specialist.
