Hi. I am currently suffering from bad breath that is resulting in others sniffing and rubbing their noses whenever I speak. I have always had good oral hygiene, but recently I have noticed that nothing helps. This all began during my first pregnancy and has gotten worse over the past 2 years. I work in a dry, arid environment, an I am not sure if this is contributing to the problem. I have been reading a lot of material on tonsil stones and believe this may be the problem. Any suggestions on how to diagnose this and ways to get rid of them?

I've had fecal bad breath since I was 13. The symptoms seemed to peak during my puberty years and have only gotten worse. I am 24 now. It's been a decade. Every year I get more and more withdrawn. University has been a disaster... I can not bring myself to participate in classes or join study groups. When I do, I am completely embarrassed. It's get's harder the older I get because I realize I am just watching my life go by. I am 7 years into an undergrad and I blame this condition for that.
I frequently try to search online for answers, and have been browsing this site on and off over the years. I've read blogs about wisdom tooth removal curing BB.
I have an appointment to remove mine in a month. My lower left has a gum flap and my lower right is a full bony horizontal impaction. I never even knew that I have that one. It doesn't cause pain or anything.
The one with the gum flap is TERRIBLE! It oozes pus and smells like crap. (sorry) I am scared to be hopeful about the procedure. I am also scared about the procedure itself because it's under general anesthesia.
I think it's important that everyone shares their triumphs and failures...maybe we can help each-other find remedies and cope with the social/emotional barricade that BB causes.
Wisdom Tooth Removal : scheduled
Neti-Pot: once a week
Brush: 2 times a day
WaterPik: twice or 3 times a day !
Floss: once a day (sometimes forget
Hydrogen Peroxide: 4 times a week
Clove Oil: once a week
Mouthwash: Listerine or Scope
Diet: typical omnivore. (high in fats and carbs very low in veges and fruit - trying to change that. Diest changes are the hardest for me)
....Nothing has helped. I'll post again when I get the wisdoms out.
Good luck to everyone with this prob. Hope you have a good week.

Ok, so I thought I'd do a month long story - chronicling my last hope... wisdom teeth removal.
Iv had BB since i was about 11 (im now 30). My dental hygiene was non-existant at the time (aspergers syndrome sensory issues with brushing etc) but now brush 3-4 times daily.
I have chronic BB through both mouth and nose (room/bus filling) so its a nightmare. Iv tried almost everything, vitamin C, grapefruitseed extract, nasal rinses, tonsillectomy, yogurt, probiotics etc etc. I had some success with a raw vegetable/ no alcohol diet but i could only keep to the diet 3 months. It was too mega-difficult to keep up, although I still eat very healthy.
Anywhoo, Iv read some posts about wisdom teeth removal curing some people. So i thought I gotta give this a try!
I have 3 wisdom teeth, (2 top and 1 bottom right) all fully erupted and as far as my dentist and I are concerned - healthy. The wisdom tooth bottom right has a very small gum flap, im not totally sure if thats a problem. Iv touched an flossed and smelt my finger and the smell seems to be minimal.
So I goes to the dentist and say im having trouble cleaning them due to location, he advised me the dangers of takin them out and how to clean them etc etc. He was very hesitant. But I insisted and he agreed :-) Im booked in to have my top left wisdom tooth out in 3 weeks time,,, and then 2 weeks later the final 2 wisdom teeth. Im praying this is my cure!
I will keep you updated on how It goes... after my first extraction and if I feel any change. I have my fingers crossed.

Hey, im 16, depressed, bad breath etc and I dont think im going to be able to play a good role in society with the bad breath I have (I have fecal bad breath). So, ive been considering joining the army. In Australia you can join when your 17, but ill probably wait until I finish school. Getting in shouldnt be a problem, my family have a military past, I score very well academically and im physically fit.
The idea of being surrounded by other men my age who couldnt care less about hygenic things like BB sounds good.

Hi all - I have been visiting the website for quite a few years now after I had some reactions to my breath that were rather upsetting and wanted to find out more and perhaps seek solace in those who knew what I was feeling.
I suffering from bad breath since in was about 12 (I'm in my 30s now) and have always been curious as to how my breath smells to other people. I know there have been other discussions around this topic, and Lord knows I have tried everything from pills to sprays to mouthwashes to endless tongue scraping and some have had various amounts of success I think - recently I have found the hydrogen peroxide & water mix after non-alcoholic mouthwash to be quite good.
But its odd - no one's told me recently (in the passed few years) that I have bad breath, but that has to be linked to the fact that I NEVER speak directly into people's faces when I am near them. I would really like an honest opinion about it - and not only that, also the fact that our breath (mine anyway) is so tempramental - sometimes it smells bad and sometimes awful, depending on what I eat, if I havent eaten for a while etc..
Most of the time, if I speak in close quarters with someone, I am thinking "I wonder if the person can tell how bad my breath is, and if they have stepped away is that an indication?" I have a very sensitive nose and can sometimes smell someone's breath from across the room - I don't know everyone's thoughts, but certainly for me if someone has very bad breath, then I tend to simply associate the person with only bad breath, and perhaps think twice about getting too close (which I rarely do anyway because of my own breath). Its so unfair when I think about it but that's the way it is i suppose - I try not to judge people according to this because I want people show me the same respect..
If anyone would like to meet and wants an honest opinion then please let me know - I am based in London.

I can relate to all of the comments so well. When I was five my mom took me to the dentist, and I was so afraid (actually screamed loudly) that I didn't go back until high school. I have not missed a dentist appointment in the last 20 years. I have been under the care of a periodontist, a general dentist, an oral surgeon and a couple of other specialists. Most recently, I spent nearly $6000.00 for extractions and implants which were supposed to help my bad breath problem. I have tried probiotics, numerous mouth washes, mints, pills, even chlorophyll, and honestly I haven't seen any improvement. I work with Jr. High children and they complain about how bad the room smells. I know that it is my breath. It has been that way for as long as I can remember. My husband doesn't believe me, because it is worse when I talk long and loudly so that everyone in the room can hear me. Also, I have learned not to talk directly to my husband (strange, I know). Yesterday, a student told me that a friend of hers from another school (that I worked at briefly) told her that I "stunk up" the whole room. I was really devastated. Even though she told me privately, I could barely get through the rest of the class. It is really hard to do my job to the best of my ability because I try to keep my distance from students, yet still do the best that I can for them. I have always been a good teacher, but as I approach my senior years, my reputation is becoming that of a "stinky old teacher" and that's the way I am begining to feel. This bad breath problem drains so much emotional energy that it is really aging me. It helps a little to know that others have this same problem. I am going on a long plane trip and I am so afraid that I will sit between passengers and my mouth odor will offend them. With a window seat, I can at least face the window. On the econo tour, I wasn't able to request a seat, People who are not aware that these extreme breath problems exist think it's all a joke. I visited a friend's very small church. That Sunday, I had eaten so many mints that they compounded the problem. I heard a couple of people talking and laughing about it how I was smelling up the room afterwards. When I spoke with the minister, she even placed her hand to her nose. Sometimes, I don't know how I will continue to go on. I have people who depend on me for financial and emotional support. I can't afford to give up. Prayer helps. If you are Christians, please pray for me to be able to continue to live. I am writing this through tears; I am so tired. This mouth odor problem prevents me from becoming the complete person that I should be. It affects every aspect of my life. If you are one who thinks this is a joke, please don't post any mean-spirited comments suggesting that I do terrible things. Again, please pray for me.

I have been viewing this site for awhile now, but this is my first time every posting anything. Ive been going threw the same thing as many of u have. People rubbin their nose when I talk. Its so mind boggelin because I dont know whether its because of my breath or maybe its their sinuses. No one ever said that I have bb, but I just no something isnt right. This has been goin on for 3 years now and its changed my social life in a big way, but for the most part I remain positive.

I had an interview yesterday and to me ,there were obvious signs that the interviewer was reacting to my BB with nose rubs,moving back and coughs..etc. i had a bad,weird dream about my halitosis/halitophbia last night. Can't remember all of it ,but alot of people from my past were saying they smelled my BB all along and were quiet about it. In the dream I was in school or something and I was finally able to ask people about my bb . Well ,people were saying how bad it always was and could not stand it for long. Everyone knew for years and years about my famous BB and it was Not Funny to them . Some people were respectful and tried to understand but still repulsed . Some were disgusted and thought i was diseased in some way ,and gave the old bs remedies from afar "brush your 4uking mouth! it stinks up the whole place !"
My Dad was there . He was trying his best to help , having the same old ideas about brushing and that ,wasnt much help but very emotionally supportive though . The whole day I was basically begging for answers or help with my bb at this place for school or work or wutever it was. No nurses or doctors helped . As the dream went on ,more people knew that the stink was coming from me , I started to get that sick paranoid feeling . Like asking for sympathy or help but people are to afraid to come near because they don't want to be associated with one so gross i guess. In the end of the dream ,Some older wiser people had put on paper masks .When I looked around ,everybody was wearing them =/ . I wanted to cry, it was like the only way to fix it in everyones mind . The only solution ? I kept my mouth closed and had to humble if someone asked my anything .
I woke up feeling so bad and anxious . I often have had Zombie themed dreams since childhood, this was really no exception but More based on reality and not really abstract.
I've been back on the high raw fruit diet ,and i know it helps at least a bit. I really just want at least 1 person that I can be honest with about this BB,that will 4uk!ng be honest with me too. I understand how its hard for a person to be put in that spot though ,but its So Much harder for us to be in limbo about whats is really going on with out BB.
Its worse than the bb itself to not know and Worry. Someone could make a Billion dollar to invent a Real working pocket halimeter . We would finally know what works or doesn't . Meantime ,we worry that others smell us.

Hi i am new to this website, first of all my name is Brad and i am happy to find out that i am not the only one with this "disease" i call halitosis a disease because it ruins sufferers lives, slaughters confidence ,stamps all over self esteem.
Anyway i have suffered from chronic halitosis for around 10 years, my mouth is always dry, i have a very sour bad taste right at the back of my tongue,thick mucus, scared to open my mouth just in case someone smells it.
I have tried every toothpaste Crest,Aquafresh, Colgate,Retardex,Blanx,Rembrandt,Arm & Hammer and hundreds more.......mouthwash Dentyl PH, Biotene, Listerine, Corsodyl,Oraldene, Colgate, Retardex and hundreds more....
I have also tried tee tree oil,hydrogen peroxide, i have a electric toothbrush and brush for at least 5 minutes every morning and night, i clean my tongue with ora-brush every morning and night also...but my mouth is still dry as sand and the horrible taste remains (bad breath).
The only cause i have noticed it may be is my filling fell out some years ago and has left a black hole, it doesn't hurt and has never gave me toothache or another maybe cause is that i eat alot of cheese.
But i drink 2 litres of water everyday.
Any ideas of help would be grateful as i have literally tried everything.
