Nurses...I am so glad I found this web site (thanks Jeeves!). Anyway, my husband's breath smells like moth balls. Yes, it is disgusting. I am making him an appt at the internist tomorrow. This has been going on since Thursday...poor guy has brushed, flossed, scrubbed and used listerine like crazy. He feels fine.
I guess I am asking if you all can think of some reason for this!! I have looked and looked on line and in the Merck Manual. All I find is acetone smelling breath for ketosis. And his breath smells like an old man...reminds me of my father in law (66, had prostate cancer 5 years ago). Help!! My husband has no s/sx of diabetes. I have even done finger sticks...always less than 110.
He had this happen about a year ago but we can't remember what or when it went away.
thanks for any help or insight.
I posted awhile ago about my husband's breath...finally got him to the doctor and GUESS WHAT?? yes, he had a chronic sinus infection. He's on a Z-pack and things are much better. Of course, he caught a head cold virus from our teenaged son, but that is another story.
thanks for listening!
