    Good evening. I guess it's possible if the mouth odour is really bad and the person sitting close to you has a very sensitive nose. There are various causes of bad breath which includes poor oral hygiene, mouth and throat infections, tooth infections, some foods like garlic and onions, some medications, some systemic illnesses. My advise would be to see a dentist to rule any dental problems and then an ENT specialist. Take care

    Ok. Sorry about that. Maybe it's time to see an ENT specialist. By ENT, I mean ear nose and throat specialist or a gastroenterologist because the smell may be coming from your gastrointestinal tract. If you need help finding any of these specialist, please send an email to findadoctor@kangpe.com stating your request and location and one would be provided for you. Take care
