For the past year, I have notice that my breath is hot and taste funny. First I tried to brush constantly, but it has not worked. I used mouthwash, but my mouth still taste funny. Sometimes I brush my teeth and tongue so many times in the morning and my mouth still taste funny. In addition, I have thick phlegm coming out. My doctor put me on prilosec because he says that it might be related to to acid reflux. I have been using the medication for a while and my breath is still bad. I can't stand having bad breath because it is ruining my social life. I can't talk to people because I am afraid they will start talking about my breath. How can I resolve this problem.
