Will post nasal drip cause bad breath?

How do you combat this?


Answer by  Dana46 (2345)

If the areas in the back of the mouth near the tonsils get clogged up, you will have bad breath. Brush the back of the mouth well and use mouthwash.

Post nasal drip can cause bad breath, since it is mucus dripping down the pharynx. Some of this mucus can land on the back of the tongue. This can cause a collection of bacteria, which can lead to foul breath. To combat this, be sure to use a mouth rinse after brushing your teeth.

Post nasal drip can cause bad breath. Your sinuses and all work together. You need to go to the doctor and get an antibotic.

Yes, it sure can. You need to see your doctor about medication to stop the drip. There are some over the counter medications for this as well.
