Bad breath sinus

Sinus conditions can have an effect on the quality of a person's breath. Upper respiratory infections and allergies can both promote the flow of postnasal drip onto the back portion of a person's tongue by way of an opening in the area of a person's soft palate. This discharge often has a foul taste and smell. What are worse, oral bacteria will feed upon this discharge and create their own smelly waste products, thus adding to the problems the person is having with bad breath. As a compounding factor, people with sinus conditions will often have stuffed up noses and therefore will have a need to breathe through their mouth. The drying effect of mouth breathing can create an environment that promotes bad breath. Sinus sufferers are also likely to be taking antihistamines, a type of medicine that is known to promote mouth dryness.

As it is already known that proteins contain amino acids, which in turn contain sulfur compounds. When a person has a post nasal drip, mucus drains and coats the back of the tongue and throat, exactly where bacteria live. Since mucus is made up of interlinked strands of protein, the bacteria have a field day, breaking down these proteins into odorous and sour tasting sulfur type compounds. Strong Antihistamines don't help, because the drying effect of the antihistamines also creates a problem. The only method of ending the odor and taste are to use Oxyd-VIII based oral products.

The fact is that once someone has an elevated amount of these anaerobic bacteria, they will create the problem from any protein source, including mucous, phlegm, etc, which drain down the back of your throat into the area where these bacteria live.
