Bad breath often is a symptom of a larger problem. Simply gargling with mouthwash or popping a mint often only masks the problem and doesn’t get to the cause. The best advice is to assess what is causing your bad breath. Smoking and drinking alcohol are common obvious causes. Other causes may be gastrointestinal upset, medications, gum disease, infected or decayed teeth or a respiratory tract infection.
If you have bad breath more than just occasionally, you don’t smoke and your doctor has ruled out an underlying medical or dental cause you should start by brushing and flossing your teeth and scrubbing your tongue. Most people who brushed their tongues and rinsed with mouth rinse after breakfast and before going to bed reduced foul mouth odor.
Secondly, you can snack on a sprig of parsley, a home remedy that really works.
