Bad breath is a problem that often embarrasses people who are interested in their personal hygiene, take daily baths use deodorant and perfume, nevertheless the unpleasant odor exuded by their skin persists. The problem can be exacerbated during an appointment or a business meeting ,due to stress, which has a significant impact on the patient's quality of life.

Possible causes of the problem

1.Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)

Sweat itself is odorless and serves the natural function of regulating body temperature. When bacteria that live on the skin dissolve sweat in its synthetic parts, create by-products, which are the source of the stench. The first effort we can make is to insist on extra cleanliness and hygiene. Take a shower as often as we can. Immediately after training in the gym, before leaving the house in the morning. Good wiping after a bath is also very important. When moisture remains after a quick wipe it is trapped in the skin and especially in folds such as the armpits and under the chest. Where there is no air, it is easier for bacteria that produce odorous compounds to grow..

-When training in the gym we prefer sports clothes that do not trap sweat. Ideal are cotton as well as special high-tech fabrics designed for this purpose

-also, to try different deodorants that inhibit the growth of bacteria (excessive use of which can lead to bursitis or dermatitis in the armpit area) and antiperspirants (which, however, have a very short-term effect).

– In cases of excessive sweating in the armpit area or on the palms and soles there is also the modern and extremely effective application of botulinum toxin which offers a very good result that lasts 5-6 months

-For hyperhidrosis of the soles helps to dry our toes well after the shower and spray the soles with antiperspirant sprays. Alongside, avoid wearing thick socks in the summer and change clean socks as often as possible! after the shower, to make an aromatic foot bath, or by mixing a liter of water with 4-5 black tea bags, either by heating one and a half liters of water with three tablespoons of baking soda or coarse salt. We leave your feet in the basin for half an hour and at the end we just dry them well with a towel.

2. High alcohol consumption , of tea and coffee

As alcohol circulates in the blood, tiny droplets are released through the sweat glands. The type of alcohol we consume does not play a role in how strongly the sweat will smell. It's good to replace caffeinated beverages (coffee, tea) and alcoholic beverages, with natural juices

3. Consumption of foods with a strong odor and spices

Foods that smell strongly, like the onion, broccoli and garlic, curry and spices, decompose and produce substances that also smell strongly. These substances circulate in the body through the blood and are released through respiration, sweat and urine. We must try to avoid these foods

Also, high consumption of red meat as well as processed foods as well as high fat foods can lead to bad breath.. It is good to limit these foods and adapt the diet in a diet rich in vegetables, which are rich in vitamins, metals, trace elements, fiber and antioxidants and promote the cleansing of the body from toxins. In addition, the consumption of parsley, celery and mint as well as cinnamon can help neutralize strong odors. In some cases, it also helps to consume squeezed lemon with water, especially breakfast

4. Skipping meals and dieting

cause a decrease in saliva production (Chewing increases saliva production). Decreased saliva leads to bad breath.

It is good to try to eat at regular intervals. Chewing gum without sugar also often helps as it increases saliva production.

5. Low water consumption

This also leads to a reduction in saliva production. The goal is to increase water consumption so that the mouth does not stay dry for long periods of time. Hydration will offer other important benefits to our skin.

6. Dietary imbalance in magnesium and zinc

If available, taking dietary supplements can help

7.Bad breath "bad breath"

In addition to the diet we have already mentioned, there may be other pathological causes such as gingivitis, nicotine. Also the lack of oral hygiene. When we do not brush our teeth often, food debris sticks between the teeth and gums, resulting in decomposition and producing foul-smelling by-products. In this case it is good to brush our teeth after eating even very small meals. In some cases it is good to brush the tongue as well as to use mouthwash to avoid the growth of bacteria..

8. Heredity (genes)

Rate 10-15% of humans has an inherited predisposition to bad breath and especially to that of the soles.

9. Stress

Which significantly increases sweating.

10. Gastrointestinal disorders leading to insufficient or incomplete digestion as well as gastroesophageal reflux.

Additional liver diseases such as liver failure which produces bad breath which smells like rotten fish.

11. Diabetes

When the body does not have enough insulin then it begins to break down fats to produce energy which releases substances that can be foul-smelling.. These have a special effect on the breath which smells like acetone. It is advisable for patients with diabetes in combination with their specialist to have their blood sugar very well regulated

12. Stink in the sensitive area

The most common cause of vaginal odor is vaginitis which is caused by fungi or germs.. Most often in the summer where the high temperatures, tight clothes and underwear, Our visit to swimming pools and beaches are risk factors. You should visit your gynecologist to diagnose the problem especially when coexisting symptoms such as itching, stinging or pain when urinating, discharge from the vagina. At the same time it is good to use special soaps that do not affect the pH vaginal and exclusively cotton underwear.

13. Excessive hair growth especially in the armpits and genital area.

The hairs increase the temperature locally resulting in intensified sweating and easier growth of bacteria. Sweat sticks to the wild hair of the area and is difficult to evaporate quickly, resulting in greater bacterial activity and lasting longer. Respectively with the hair there is a bigger "suitable ground" that is a bigger surface, whereupon the effect of this bacterial action is multiplied. Epilation is recommended ideally with use laser.

14. Oily scalp

A particularly oily head has an increased load on bacteria as well as increased itching. Frequent shampooing of the scalp with special shampoos against oiliness and dandruff.
