6581828 tn?1382643059 Hi, if it from the throat and of recent origin, it could be due to a throat infection. This causes the perception of bad breath mostly perceivable to self only. Consult an ENT specialist, he could help figure out if any infections or inflammations in the throat are causing your present symptoms of bad breath. In the meantime try warm salt water gargling and see if it helps. Regards.
Avatar m tn Dietary factors, alcohol and tobacco use can also cause bad breath. Poor oral hygiene or mouth infections, infections in the lungs, sinuses or airways can also cause bad breath due to the presence of nasal secretions which may drain into the mouth. Coughing up sputum from lung infections can also cause bad breath. A complete clinical examination and work up for above mentioned conditions is essential for correct diagnosis and treatment. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause.
Avatar m tn Besides this Group B Streptococcus, mycoplasma, neisseria and cornybacterium are known to cause throat infections. Other known pathogens causing infections of the throat are viral and yeast (candida). The reason for elaborating about these pathogens is that the tests done and the therapy initiated vary for the listed pathogens. To begin with a throat swab is taken to see for streptococcus.
Avatar m tn For the last year or so I have had these pinpoint size pimples in my mouth and throat. I went to see two ENT's and neither one of them knew what they were or what was causing them. They took swabs and they came back normal. They tried antibiotics and they are still there. They even gave me an inhaler and nothing. The pimples are still there. One ENT said, maybe I should have my tonsils taken out and the other ENT said, my tonsils were fine.

Avatar n tn Another doctor mentioned that yeast infections can occur in the throat and mouth and cause these symptoms. If antibotics make it worse than you have a lot of yeast in the mouth. Get tested for that too. The doctor said oral yeast infections can cause sore throat, coughing, bad breath and even stomach pain.

Avatar m tn The environment in the mouth is a hostile environment for these infections. This is because they thrive in warm very moist environments and the mouth is constantly exposing itself to air. They are more sensitive to their undesirable environments than people think.

I didnt think much of it, because sometimes he complains when he wakes up late. Well I left for work, when I came back I found him sleeping with a fever..

Avatar n tn Dry mouth can cause some problems . Most notably is an increase in the incidence of tooth decay and an increase of inflammation of the gingival tissues.(gums) Stress plays a big part in many maladies much of which that can't be proven. See an ENT doctor to check out your throat.
Avatar f tn Hello, I was recently diagnosed with Gornorrhea, the doctor gave me antibiotics. I was also got tested for HIV and the result was negative. But right now, I am terrified because CDC links gonorrhea and hiv co-infection. I don't exactly when I got the gonorrhea, but I believe maybe within 2 months only, and I got treated. My question is, was there a chance that I might have been exposed to HIV as well? assuming the person who gave me gonorrhea was also co-infected with HIV?

Avatar f tn 1 and half years back I kissed a CSW. But she closed her lips and I was drunk and kissing her outer mouth(not even the lips). I am very worried about gonorrhea. Are the tests for oral gonorrhea accurate? Are the treatments for oral gonorrhea effective in curing it? I have read that most gonorrhea infections oral or otherwise go away on their own if left untreated.
974371 tn?1424653129 Chronic dry mouth and throat. Now having some issues with phelgm. Often loose my voice. Numerous tests and biopsies by ENT and Gastro docs. No answers and I just get worse. Any idea if this could be stomach related or any tests that can be done outside the regular ones, which are usually within normal? I am now taking Oneprazole, no improvement but it does help the nausea a bit. I take maybe 1/2 of a .05 mg of Alprazolam a day, B-12' Vit D for Osteo, fish oil.
Avatar f tn If you feel that your bad breath is coming from your throat, it would be a good idea for you to make an appointment to see your doctor to examine your throat to see if you have a build up of catarrh and/or a throat infection or bad tonsils. If you do have a lot of mucus at the back of your throat, you will benefit from doing steam inhalations to loosen up the congestion. To do a steam inhalation, get a bowl and pour in a kettleful of boiling water, taking care not to get scalded.
