Bad breath is both embarrassing and can also be a symptom of poor dental hygiene. This guide contains tips and remedies for dealing with bad breath.
Dip your toothbrush in peroxide and brush to kill germs that cause bad breath. You may also gargle with peroxide but have a glass of water ready as you will want to gargle with that also. It really works. Some might have to do two to three days.

The fizzing is not killing bacteria. It is a reaction to the H2O2 on protein. If you have bad breath you need to go to the dentist and have your teeth cleaned. You may have gum disease. People need to realize Peroxide does not kill germs. If it did medical personnel would use that to sterilize surfaces and skin before they give you an injection instead of alcohol. They do not. Peroxide's bubbling action cleanses wounds buy lifting dirt or dead cells. Antibiotic salve still needs to be applied because H2O2 does not kill bacteria.
Another caution regarding use of peroxide in the mouth is it can cause Black Hairy Tongue and, in some cases after developing it, can lead to Thrush. Sorry to be so graphic but here is a photo:
This is a guide about my husband has bad breath. Telling a spouse that they have bad breath can seem difficult or even hurtful, but in the long run is a good idea from both a social and health standpoint.
First of all be sure you have your teeth cleaned on a regular basis. There is a liquid mouthwash called CloSys that I use. I can get it from my dentist, online, or at Walgreens. I developed gingivitis years ago and it never really goes away so I have to make sure I do everything I can to control it.
My dentist recommended using CloSys diligently in the morning and at bedtime after brushing to help control gingivitis because it kills the bacteria that causes it. It is also excellent for bad breath. We all know how gross and embarrassing morning breath can be so I wanted to give it a try to see if it really worked for that and WOW, I was amazed, it really did work.
Swishing it around for 30 seconds or so and be sure to gargle with it because the back part of your tongue harbors bacteria that causes bad breath. After spitting it out, DO NOT rinse with water. You can also get CloSys toothpaste (it's a bit pricey though) and use it together with the mouth washing regimen. I hope this helps you!

Does anyone know what can I wear or do to my lips in order to get a bad smell off of them? I work in a kitchen and the heat of the oven I operate make the smell off my lips take over the whole kitchen. Please does someone know what should I do?
See a Dermatologist for help with your problem.
Making sure your mouth is clean is an good way to combat bad breath. It will also help prevent it. Here are some tips to having a clean mouth:
My young nephew's halitosis let up after his mom started using a tongue scraper on him nightly. We started using them in our family as well. Our favorite one is the Tongue Sweeper since it's metal and lasts a long time without nicking and is easily sterilized.
Germs cause bad breath, as well as certain foods. Make sure all areas of your mouth are well cleaned; tongue, gums and palate. Flossing is also crucial as food gets trapped in between teeth.
What is good for bad breath?
Buy a good tooth brush and some tooth paste and brush your teeth three times a day and brush your tongue to this is where the bacteria builds up is on your tongue. After doing this if you still have a problem consult a doctor bad breath can also be a sign of an infection somewhere in your body.
Grow some fresh parsley. Chew a sprig a few times a day. Really works.
What must I do to get rid of my bad breath?
By Kwazi N from Elukwatini
I switched from an expensive "professional" over-the-counter mouthwash to baking soda and water. Don't forget to gargle as well to neutralize the bad odor in your mouth.
First: Have your dentist check for tooth decay, gum disease, and coating of the tongue (there are tongue scrapers which can surprisingly eliminate some bad breath.) Secondly, get a check for stomach (digestive etc.) problems. Thirdly, are your lungs healthy? If affirmative on all these, maybe your body needs some detoxifying (cleansing of your liver and gallbladder, which can be done following a good herbal program). Toxins in our bodies can definitely cause bad breath. I hope this helps. Good luck!
I would like to know how to treat bad breath.
I had a terrible problem with this. I drink coffee constantly, am a heavy smoker, suffer from post-nasal drip, and have digestive problems. Any one of these cause bad breath. I have finally found products that completely solved my problem. However, I can't find them in stores. I only found one or two of their products in one store in my area, but not what I really needed. I have to order them online.
Here is their website.... http://www.therabreath.com/index.asp
They have lozenges and gum, that instantly freshen your breath. They also have toothpaste and rinses, of course, that are wonderful. Believe me, they are worth the price. Between the coffee and smoking, I always had a brown tongue; but since using the lozenges, gum, toothpaste and rinse, it is a healthy pink color, and no bad breath!
Bad breath is often a sign of gum disease.....which can lead to infections in your gums and your teeth fall out.
You should visit your dentist for regular check ups. Floss daily and buy a Water Pik to blast away food debris stuck between your teeth. And make sure to brush your tongue, all the way as far back as you can reach. All these things will make your mouth cleaner and your breath fresher!

What can I do to get rid of bad breath? I brush and floss and visit my dentist every 3 months. I do drink coffee and tea, so that probably doesn't help. Any easy pointers?
