If you suspect your breath is worse than simply morning breath and you might have halitosis, it’s time to do a quick check-in.
Halitosis often has a sulfur-like smell thanks to the build-up of bacteria in your mouth. Unfortunately, you might not smell it because our sense of smell doesn’t pick up on background odors.
The quickest and surest way to find out if you have halitosis is to ask an honest friend. We all have someone who’s willing to say things that others simply aren’t!
Otherwise, you can also try a quick sniff test. Lick your wrist, wait for it to dry and then smell it. The bacteria linked with halitosis tends to build up towards the back of your tongue. So, if you can smell something from the saliva on the tip of your tongue, chances are the back of your tongue is a lot worse.
Smell something? Time to take action.
