yes, there are treatments for bad breath.
the treatment depends on what is causing it.
if you are having acid reflux cause your bad breath, then you need the acid reflux treated.
if you are having bad teeth and gingivitis causing your bad breath, then you need your teeth and gums treated and cleaned.
if you have H Pylori bacterial infection in your stomach causing urea gas in your stomach and bad breath, then you need treatment for H Pylori bacteria in your stomach.
you might need more testing to find out if you have H Pylori in your stomach .

i am not sure but how can i get tested for h pylori bacterial infection
it is tested for by a blood test to look for antibodies.
or a stool test to check for H Pylori antigens in your stool
or you can see a GI doctor to get an upper endoscopy scope down into your stomach which can sample and culture fluid from your stomach to look for this bacgteria
also a breath urea test can check for the presence of urea in your breath .
