Fecal Smelling Bad Breath

by J.M.

I have been dealing with this issue for the last 3 years. I have never had an issue with bad breath until 3 yrs ago. This is an extremely embarrassing problem. I have great dental hygiene. However, just 10 mins after I brush my teeth, my breath smells horrible. It seems like it is coming from my throat/stomach. I don't know what to do. This is affecting my career and my relationship and I need help badly. I went to my ENT, and they think I have mild acid reflux. I am going to a gastroenterologist next week to see if there are any other issues. If you have heard of this before please share your insight.

Reply: Hi J.M. - I apologize for taking so long to publish your post. How are things going? Was your gastroenterologist able to help? I'm not familiar with your problem, but I hope if any of our visitors recognize your symptoms, they'll post a reply.

I don't usually recommend this product because most bad breath originates in the mouth and throat. However, you might want to try Mint Assure, which is available in most drug chains and big-box retail outlets. Mint Assure attacks bad breath from the stomach (one of the things that makes me think it might work on fecal bad breath) and could be just what you need.

Again, I apologize for the delay and hope you'll post back to let us know how things are going.

Best regards,

I have found a solution. I have tried everything including a mouthwash I found online called Cyosis. It did work for the first couple of days, but it soon stopped. It makes your mouth feel really fresh and odor free. I think this may actually work for you sinse your problem isn't as bad as mine. Good luck!!!!!

Well I have been dealing with bad breath for a long time. I thought it came from bad teeth, so I would go to the dentist and get cleaning and extractions but the smell would always come back. So lately I have been noticing how bad its gotten. When im around family no one wants to sit close to me or talk to me. I often here them saying what is that smell and someone fart. It has ruined my social life and I can't find a job in this condition. I sometimes cry because I have this great personality and bright future that I can't persue because this problem. What should I do??????
