Hey everybody, ive got a lot to say so this will be an essay lol. So, to begin with im a 16 year old kid and ive been suffering from fecal BB ever since I can remember, so I began to think of things that I have also been suffering from ever since I can remember.
These include (causes):
-Post Nasal drip
-Constantly clogged up sinuses
-A poor diet
-Tonsillitis, tonsil stones (only recently found out)
- Tongue bacteria
Tonsil stones (cure)
So, from these causes which I found out I did further investigating and found out the main one, for me, was post nasal drip and constantly clogged up sinuses, these caused mucus to be deposited in my tonsils and eventually smell like poo. These balls of mucus in my tonsils are yellow and smell disgusting. I assume this may be the reason why I also have yellow gunk on my tongue rather than white gunk sometimes. I poked my tonsils with my finger and smelled it. It was awful. So there we go, a source of the smell. (if you have fecal breath, then poke your tonsils and smell it and get nothing, dont worry, sometimes you cant smell your own breath and your tonsils are pretty hard to find). So, the only cure for this cause is to remove my tonsils, which I am bugging my parents to do for me. So this is how we cure the tonsilitis, tonsil stones cause.
Post nasal drip and clogged up sinuses (cure)
My doctor prescribed me a saline nose spray to use once a day to clear up my sinuses.The specific brand is Nasonex Mometasone Furoate, Aques nasal spray 0.05%. This cleared out my sinuses, and the removal of my tonsils will clear up the scraps of mucus left.
I was allergic to cats and feathers, so all I started doing was avoiding cats and feathers lol. This pretty much eliminated the problem. Although, if it is bad i would get medication to protect you from the specific thing that causes your body to react, like I have a tablet that stops my allergies of cats for 8 hours or so. This also helped stop the post nasal drip, sinus mucus and hence tonsil stones.
Lactose intolerance (cure)
I was never really lactose intolerant, I would never vomit if I had dairy, but I did get a bit sick when I had too much. I realised that my body didnt like lactose, so it wasnt coping too well in the lower intestine. Because of this the smell of feces was released up into my mouth. Im not sure if this is true, but its what I hypothesise. So, I completely eliminated lactose from my diet, I dont even eat butter because it has lactose in it anymore.
Before you skip this one, remember that a big cause of bad breath is the consumption of dairy products. If you stop eating dairy it may greatly reduce the strength of your bad breath. Anyway, I dont need to say too much about this one, I just ate healthy and didnt have any dairy.
Hopefully, the irradication of all the previous issues will help eliminate tongue bacteria, but if it doesnt you may be suffering from candida. I find using hydrogen peroxide as mouth wash kills the bad bacteria in my mouth, I also brush my tongue with a tongue brush.
Ok, so if you use the previous cures to eliminate the causes you have, it should work. I would recommend checking the smell of your tonsils and thinking of any problems you have had with your body that began at a similar time when your bad breath did. The weirdest things can sometimes be the cause of fecal breath. Hope this helps guys
Me: So far it has helped, but not cured my BB, the reason being I have only been at it for a few days and i havent got my tonsils removed yet.

Ok, so ive narrowed the cause of fecal breath down to two things. 1. Something in the stomach area, internal organs. 2. Tonsils
So, my one is the tonsil cause. I have post nasal drip, because of my allergies. My sinuses are always blocked up with mucus. This mucus is deposited in my tonsils, causing tonsil stones. And these tonsil stones smell like poo, seriously. they are yellow/white and they coat my tongue with a yellow paste which adds to the smell. To figure this out I reached into my throat and touched my tonsils, i then smelled my finger. It was awful. Im getting my tonsils removed soon so that will probably cure it. In the meantime I will eat less dairy, because dairy makes poo breath so much worse. If any of you think you have poo breath and touch your tonsils then smell it and you dont smell anything, it may be because you cant smell your own breath, sometimes I cant, just try again later. Or you could be touching the wrong place in your mouth, it took me ages to find my tonsils
I will try and find a cure for the type that comes from the stomach soon. Im not even sure if there is a type that comes from the stomach, but if there is it would probably be caused be the backing up of poo, and this could be removed by detoxing, taking laxatives or drinking apple cider vinegar.
Anyway guys, I hope the removal of my tonsils cures my bad breath, it should. Ill get back to you when I have my surgery. All the best everyone.
By the way, a week before I found the cure, I said a prayer to god to help me cure it. Im not sure if it worked, but its a possibility.

I've been reading on here on and off for a few years now. I've struggled tremendously with the bb issue since the age of around 10 or so. I am now 34. Most of you on here are familiar with my story. I have bb that inhibits me enough to not take part in life the way I'd like to. I'm ashamed about it all the time and have withdrawn from a lot of social situations as a result, minimized a lot of the joy in my life and missed out on sharing my life with others in many, many ways. My love life has been nonexistent for many years because I get so stressed out trying to get close, literally and figuratively. I'm always waiting for someone to be disgusted by my breath.
I've bought lots of silly products, maintained fanatical oral hygiene regiments, worried myself sick and in the end never really found any lasting solution or reasonable response to this problem.
This week I have to say, and I almost don't believe it myself sitting here writing about it, I think I found my issue and I felt I needed to share with this community. I have been bb free, or at least bb reduced by a significant amount, for the last 2 days. There has been a flurry of activity on my part so I can't say with certainty what role any of the actions I've taken has played so I'll list them all in the interest of scientific control:
For the past 5 days I've been taking 2000 mg's of vitamin C in the mornings and evenings.
For the last two days I've taken 2 table spoons of bentonite clay detox, one in the morning and one before bed.
For the past 2 months I've been using the tongue spray and mouth wash from BreathRX 2 or 3 times a day after most meals.
For the last week I've been using a neti pot with salt water, hydrogen peroxide (5 drops) and a pinch of baking soda while in the shower in the morning.
For the last 2 days I have not eaten any meat or fish and very little dairy. I have been eating fruits, veggies, soups (made without meat or cream), baked goods (mainly sourdough bread and a few croissants). All of the fruit I've eaten has been raw and most of the veggies have been either dressed salads or cooked. I've drank a few fresh, raw juices. I eat yogurt and granola for breakfast every day including the last 5 days. I have not eaten any pasta, pizza, soy or tofu product. I have not drank any soda or hard liquor. I have consumed beer and wine. Actually a great deal of both last night...
For the past 5 days I've increased the length of time I sleep at night by 2 hours, give or take.
For the past 5 days I've added a 1/4 teaspoon of coconut oil to my toothpaste (baking soda and peroxide) in the morning.
For the past 4 days I've been chewing on those Tea Tree Oil toothpicks once or twice a day.
For the past year I floss at least once a day, and usually twice or three times.
So for the past 2 days I believe I've been bb free. I am going by peoples facial expressions (my god it's so painful the way conversations always get weird when your breath's off) and by the finger test. I swab my throat and tongue as far back as possible, wait 20 seconds and smell my finger. In almost all cases there will be a dank odor which will persist well after the saliva has dried. I haven't come out and asked anyone to tell me if I have bb. It's too big an issue in my mind and heart to discuss it with people 99.9% of the time. I really feel responsible for and ashamed about the condition. In all these years I've never gotten even close to accepting it as part of who I am or whatever... I do feel the finger swab test is kind of reliable. Maybe I'm wrong.
In any case, I haven't been able to detect much odor via the swab method since giving up meat. It is a pretty dramatic change. In addition to appearing to have had an effect of my breath, or at least the smell of my saliva on my finger, not consuming meat has given me a much lighter feeling in my body and an increased general sense of well being. I almost feel as though a fairly significant anxiety has been relieved...It's weird. I also haven't felt run down or spent at the end of the day, or even in the middle of the day, the way I often can.
Historically I am a big carnivore and a big eater in general. I love to eat. I'm not overweight and I exercise, but I eat quite a bit every day. It's not hard for me to eat 4 meals a day, all containing meat, bread, dairy. It is more unusual for me to consume lots of fruits and veggies in any given meal or day. I will usually eat a salad, or a side dish of vegetables in addition to a meat based item at the center of a meal and comprising the largest part of the meal. I probably consume 95% animal protein to 5% fish or shellfish protein over the course of any given week, month, year.
My tongue still turns white as the day proceeds unless I brush and scrap it.
My floss does not seem to have any odor after use since the morning after the first night I didn't eat any meat at dinner.
This morning, the 3rd full day without meat I woke up and via the finger swab method (fs) I can't detect any odor. I have never had this experience in my entire life. Generally, I would say my morning breath is disastrously pungeant. It's always occurred to me as alarmingly unhealthy, more than just run of the mill morning breath. I can smell it myself without doing anything more than just breathing. Today, nothing. Literally nothing.
I have to say, I LOVE eating meat. I crave meat even when it's a part of my diet. That being said, if I can be free from this condition by eliminating meat from my diet, I would gladly go the rest of my life as a vegetarian. I have been so desperate to find a solution for so long. I really can't believe that this seems to be working. I'm not overjoyed. I'm scared that I'm wrong or that this wont last...
I wanted to share this information with everyone on here. I fully recognize that this may be a temporary solution or that I could be experiencing totally random relieve from bb that will end just as quickly as it started without another change in diet or routine, but I'm hoping this is the chance I've been waiting for. I kind of feel like meat has been poisoning me for a very long time. The change in the smell of my saliva is so dramatic, even while consuming alcohol, that I am stunned!
I hope this is helpful to someone else. This forum has been a valuable resource for me and helped to keep me motivated to help myself, take control of this problem and search for a solution. I feel deeply indebted to Jimi and all of you who post on here for creating a forum for all of us who suffer with this issue to speak freely and gain insight and information from one another. I feel that with enough information all of us can be free from this affliction and establish the personal connections we so badly need.
I will return with updates

I was struggling with bad breath, and I think I found the answer. The problem with me was that I could not tell if I had a bad breath, and it was always hard to find honest feedback, and I think it got mental too...
I thought I had candida at first, but that was not it. Then I thought it was acid reflux. I did have acid reflux too, but while trying to fix the bad breath problem, I also fixed the acid relfux. Because I am sure acid just made my breath so much worse. Finally I found out that I always have post nasal drip. Or I have lived with post nasal drip all my life, or since I was a kid. To me it was a normal activity. One day I started spiting without any reason and something was not right with my spit. Finally I went to a doctor and told him my symptoms, and he told me I have sinus problems. After a cat scan he found a maxillary cyst - left.
I figured because of the cyst, my sinus is trying to kill the unwanted cyst bacteria and stuff. So my sinus produce extra extra mucus in order to kill the cyst. But the cyst was immune to my natural strength. And the extra extra mucus was draining in my stomach, but the stomach does not like all that extra mucus, and through acid back to my throat.
So then I come back to America, and I see a doctor for the cyst. Thinking that if I get rid of the cyst, bad breath is cured. To cure the cyst I think I need good insurance for a operation. So the doctor here gave me some strong liquid antibiotic which cost me around $120 x 3, and I also owe them another $650 for my three appointments... anyways, how did I cure my bad breath problem? I was thinking how can I clean my sinuses like I brush my teeth, every day at least once a day, and possibly kills my cyst. One day I went to CVC and just by looking around I saw a neti pot. I bought a generic brand for like $17. The first time I used it I felt different. And I clean my sinuses with the neti pot every day. And there is no more acid reflux, there is no more tongue coating, and tongue scraping, or when I scrape my tongue with my teeth, there is nothing, and there is less phobia, less and less feeling of having bad breath.
hope this helps

Chronic severe halitosis can only be eliminated by Bentonite clay detox. All other things are bull.
1 tablespoon bentonite clay powder mixed with 200 grams of fresh apple juice before breakfast and same before bed. Diet should be high carb. 3-6 months and your evil halitosis is gone.
I myself suffered from chronic halitosis since I was 14, during 30 years. I've tried everything in the world, but nothing helped.
Bentonite detox is the only cure.
Trust me, try it, and mother nature will cure you.
You will be smell free.
God bless you and good luck.

Hello to whomever takes the time to read my story, today was a good day for me. I have suffered from cronic bad breath(@#$% breath) for about 12 years now and I work in a very loud factory so when you have to talk to someone you have to talk loud so they can hear you, this made it very uncomfortable for people to talk to me and to work beside me. Not to mention my social life is pretty much dead because of it....I tried all the mouth washes and all the gizmos and whatever but nothing worked. Then I read an article about really looking at what your eating, so I did and I found out I was consuming an enormous amount of dairy products. I started looking into what dairy products can do to some peoples breath and it wasn't good, so I thought I would cut that out of my diet completely. I mean I was having cream in my coffee, cheese on my breakfast sandwich, cheese on my sandwich at lunch, I would get home from work and have cheese and crackers etc. Not to mention all the milk I was drinking. It was damn hard but i gave it up on friday and I kept up my regular mouth cleanings floss etc. Over the weekend I noticed that the layer of filth was gone from my tongue and I barely had to scrape it at all. Then today I went to work and talked to a few people and I got positive response back, they're heads weren't trying to dodge my breath and I had a conversation with somebody for the first time in a long time. Just sayin it's like they say you are what you eat I guess.
Thank you forums

I have suffered from halitosis for 2 years now and its lead me to feeling depressed and strongly considering suicide! The source of my bad breath comes from my tongue, i have a fixed furred coating with lots of nucks and cranies at the rear end of my tongue, which absorbs everyhting like a sponge and gives off a foul odor, i have tried everything from gargaling salt water scrpaing profusely with a tongue scraper, even using a razor to try and get rid of the furred texture (not a good i idea i know), ive tried most 'clinically proven products' - retardeX, therabreath etc and these only mask the odor for roughly 20minutes, chewing gum makes my breath smel worse!!.. i really don't know what to do, it has crippled my confidence and ruining my life, im 18 and its halting everything in my life , starting university, a part time job, socialising i want to plan a holiday this summer with friends but i dont think i could cope, has ANYONE got any advice , alls i get from docs and dentists is brush, floss use listerine (listerine has alcohol in which drys the mouth out) .. i feel i need to smooth out the surface of my tongue then the bad breath MAY subside , any thoughts im crying out for help here :(

I hope someone can help with my BB. Here is my story.
The first time I knew I had bad breath was when I was in 2nd grade. I lost a girlfriend because she told me I had bad breath. I used to wrestle around with my brother and he told one day that my breath smelled worse than my butt. I started using mints, gum ect... but always the same result. I became self conscious of it and tried my best not to talk directly in front of people.
I tried my best through high school and college. I have friends and a wife but I donít talk that much when I am around them. My wife asked me one morning if I had farted, all I did was say good morning. I knew what the problem was.
After I became older I tried various products from the internet without any luck. I have heard people say that my breath would knock a buzzard off a sh_t wagon. My co-workers stand in my doorway instead of coming in my office, when Iím on the phone they leave. After I say anything inside a car there is silence because they canít believe if I farted or its coming out of mouth.
I could go on and on. This is not just in my head, I can rub my finger across my toung - dry it in the air for a moment and then smell it. Yep same thing smells like fecal. Let me spare you the details of what I have tried all my life. But you must know a few things in order to help me if you can.
1. Dentist says my teeth and gums are healthy.
2. Went to a breath clinic, white coating on my toung, scrape every morning and night Ė still have poo breath.
3. Had tonsils removed at the age of 25.
4. Had sinuses surgery at the age of 18 for a blockage. I have large sinuous cavities and some post nasal drip.
5. Had an endoscopy done when I was 30, doctor did not find anything but a hiatal hernia, took meds for about a year, still have poo breath.
I could write a book on what I have tried. I came across this site and read about Candida. I have to question whether or not my doctor knew what he was looking for when I had the endoscopy done because I still have poo breath.
I am now 47 and my poo breath seems to be getting worse if that is possible. I use a mask in the late fall when I cut the grass and I can smell my own breath, its nasty poo breath. I know all about it, the body will not allow you to smell your own breath. Well mine is so bad that I notice it.
Do you know what it feels like to read a book to your children and watch them pull the sheets up to their nose?
I have never found a Doctor that I can talk with on the subject, that understands what to look for or how to find the problem. Canít someone take samples of saliva or tissues and tell me the origin?
Thatís all for now. You can ask me questions if you want; Iím open for just about anything at this point in my life.
