Bad breath from the nose

by Damien

I have a very very bad breath problem coming from my nose. I have been to a doctor several times, but the medicine that he gives me just helps clear up the mucous but not the bad smell. I am really tired and fed up with this problem because it is affecting my social life like never before. I'm really desperate for answers, and I need them ASAP. So if anyone can help me in any way, I am all ears.

Bad Breath From Nasal Passages
by: Anonymous

I have the same problem, having had lots of allergies my entire life. I understand how awful mouth odor really impacts your social life in a bad way. I am told I have a beautiful smile, but I hate to open my mouth because I'm afraid the 'funk' will jump out of my mouth and scare people away.

I have found tea tree oil diluted in water is helpful in a Neti Pot rinse. It burns like swimming in Chlorine, but it does help. I rinse hourly with mouthwash to stay on top of growing odors. I also recently learned that peppermint oil can help. so I use some on a Q-tip to swab my nasal passages and throat.

I'd love to hear any suggestions you may have. Best of luck to you...
