I noticed that whenever I speak, some people avoid me. Although nobody has confirmed this development, I know that the problem is real. The problem has caused me to a lot of embarrassment and poor self esteem. Despite the fact that I always brush my mouth and use antiseptic mouth wash regularly, the problem has refused to go away. Kindly let me know what else I can do.

The feeling of having a Bad breath (Halitosis) can be imagined or real. In your case, it is difficult to know which is which since nobody has confirmed that it is real. Apart from a poor dental hygiene, other common causes of the problem are stress and a fiber- deficient diet. There is the need for you to urgently consult a dentist in case you have some underlying mouth and throat ailments. The dentist will also be able to confirm if what you have is real or imagined. In the meantime, you will need to increase your consumption of vegetables and gargle with a weak hydrogen peroxide and water solution.
