Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 10 days ago.

that is very possible

what have you tried for it?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
I reckon it is that because my nose is runny allot, and one side of my nostril is always blocked, i usually use saline wash? I wash out both my nostrils with neti pot and it usually helps me to breathe better, i also scrape my tongue .. after i do all this i cant smell any bad breath until hours after wards?
