The most common cause of foul breath is bacteria on the tongue. Use a toothbrush or a tongue scraper to clean yours. Scrapers will be slightly more effective. Avoid brittle plastic ones that may break and metal ones that may be sharp.
Heartburn or Acid Reflux
GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) is a common digestive illness with two symptoms. It's possible that your poor breath is due to undigested food coming back up, or that stomach acid irritation is causing postnasal drip. If you have frequent heartburn, get medical advice.
As if respiratory tract illnesses like colds and bronchitis weren't awful enough, they can also cause bad breath. Because odor-causing bacteria prefer to feed on mucus (yes, it's awful), this is the case. When your nose is congested, you're more inclined to breathe via your mouth, which might dry out your mouth.
A night out with friends drinking beer could leave you with more than a hangover. Alcohol, although being a liquid, can dry out your mouth, encouraging the bacteria that produce halitosis, the medical word for bad breath. Caffeine-containing beverages, spicy foods, and cigarettes can all cause this. Morning breath is caused by a dry mouth caused by a lack of saliva production while sleeping.
