Hello doctor,

I am a 21-year-old male. When I talk to someone they said I have bad breath, and do brush and come back again. But I always clean my tongue properly. Most of the people whom I have talked about said I have bad breath.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Bad breath or halitosis is a common problem. There are a number of potential causes and treatments available. Simple home remedies, and lifestyle changes, such as improved dental hygiene and quitting smoking, can often remove the issue. The best method to reduce halitosis is good oral hygiene. This ensures that cavities are avoided and reduces the likelihood of gum disease.

Treatment:

1) Mouth rinses and tooth pastes.

2) Brush your teeth after you eat.

3) Floss at least once a day.

4) Brush your tongue.

5) Avoid dry mouth.

6) Adjust your diet.

I suggest taking Metrogyl 400 mg thrice daily for three days, tablet Taxim (Cefixime) 200 twice daily for three days, and Pantocid-D once daily for three days.
