DH ....bad breath [blush]

For the last few days DH has had that typical halitosis smell lingering around his general mouth area........not nice.

He's flossed loads, used Listerine but it's still there.

He's recently begun eating much healthier and has cut out all the crap......

He's never had bad breath before now!

What could it be?

A dental problem?

Is he a bit under the weather? Throat/nasal things can cause a nasty whiff.

Does he need a trip to the dentist? Bad tooth or gums.

You're pregnant!

I immediately thought it might be a tooth ulcer but he said his teeth feel fine!

Haha I did have an extremely strong sense of smell during all my pregnancies but he had the snip a few years ago....

Has he got a sinus infection (apparently children absolutely stink when they get something lodged up their nose...)

Did he actually get his count checked after the snip, and again recently? I know someone who got pregnant after being sterilised. Apparently there's a theoretical possibility for it to reconnect. Just saying.

Tonsil stones?

My partner's breath smells if he hasn't eaten for ages. Also if he drinks coffee and doesn't eat for ages 😬

Lego you're frightening me......I'm 48 and tired most of the time as it is!

SleepFree yes! He hasn't been eating half as much as he normally does and drinks coffee. Your theory is so. Uch more attractive than Lego's

People on the Atkins diet can get bad breath. Maybe it’s because he’s dieting.

Tonsil stones
Post nasal drip
Acid reflux
Bad tooth
Gum disease

All of them can cause bad breath.

Yes probably the change in diet. Tell him to drink water regularly. CB12 is the best mouthwash out there for bad breath. It works. It's expensive but you can get it on offer.
