At some point in time, most of us have had breath. Usually, this situation can be easily rectified with a simple swish of mouthwash or by brushing and flossing.
However, for some people, the awful smell persists for weeks, if not months!
Stubborn bad breath can make you feel awkward in social situations, cause emotional distress, and lower your self-esteem. It can be embarrassing and tough on those around you.
A 26-year-old female DxD reader wrote in to share her story. She revealed that she has been having bad breathe since she was 9. Despite implementing an extensive dental hygiene routine involving flossing and tongue scraping, she feels that the scent has only gotten worse.
