HP and bad breath

Post by TIA1971 »

I’ve decided to test for HP as I have awful bad breath, I floss, scrape and wash my teeth several times a day, yet my breath still smells, am I on the right track testing for HP?

Thank you

not all bad breath is because of H. pylori. Nevertheless, it's not a bad idea to have HP checked. If you are negative of H. pylori, you can go to any GP and ask for a course of metronidazole. Perhaps it is also a good idea to get a dentist to give you a proper oral check.

You can check yourself for HP but it is definitely not the first problem to check out when you have such problem.
