Hi, I have been suffering with bad breath just about all my life, probably mostly due to food allergies causing serious post nasal drips and enlarged adenoids, rotten tonsils until they were removed. For the last 10 years now, every few months I would use up to five drops of Dettol in half a glass of water and use it as a gargle. It tastes awfull but it kills off the bad smelling bacteria for at least a few weeks befor it has to be repeated. And just the relief not to have people backing away as soon as you talk, is something worthwhile. Try it.
