Yes linked, I usually notice the dc's breath is bad when they have tonsilitis. Although the first couple of times I never made the connection and sent them to brush their teeth and tongues! blush

my d always gets smelly breath before a bug/illness/unspecified poorly attack.

Yes linked.

Sounds like some sort of infection of the mouth or throat.

My DDs have all had foul breath to accompy the a number of ailments which are all accompanied with a fever e.g. Strep throat
coldsores inside the mouth (particularly hideous breath with this one).

Can you see anything in the mouth or throat?

she won't let me look, but i can feel the shape of one of her teeth just under her gum.

DS had really bad breath that got continually worse.
It started when eh was a bit poorly, but was still there even after he got better.
We took him to the doctors and our GP pulled a massive piece of rotten cotton wool out of his nose.
If it doesn't go when she gets better take her to see the GP, there may be something she has put up her nose.
