So I have been suffering for years with bad breath. I couldn’t figure out the problem. I tried EVERYTHING from continuing to have amazing oral hygiene, trying all of the store products like Thera breath I got my tonsils removed because I thought the problem was coming from tonsil stones.... I have tried everything! Now I think it’s because I have lost nasal drip all year round. I tried all of the nasal rinses and even got an air purifier. If anyone has had this problem and found the cure PLEASE HELP ME!!

Hello and welcome

I appreciate your concern

The oral cavity needs to be examined for possible gum disease and jawbone abnormalities. Anaerobic or fungal infection of the oral cavity , xerostomia and dental caries can also present with similar symptoms. GERD and chronic sinusitis should also be looked for. Please consult an oral physician for further management.

Wishing you best of health
