Post-nasal drip with bad taste and smell

Hi- I have had this post-nasal drip wfor about two years with a bad off-ish taste and smell. I also get small little white pieces of this hard substance that comes from my throat- when I press is it smell terrible. What could this be.
I do not have flu, I have balances meals?
It is affecting my self esteem cause im always chewing gum cause I think my breathe smells like faeces.
What can I do about this???

Dear Nelly
You probably have a low grade chronic sinusitis and the white substance is called tonsolliths ( debri that gathers in the crypts of the tonsils) Please see your doctor for an examination as you may need anti-allergic medicine and/or antibiotics for this?
