    Horrendous breath after eating ice cream

    Hello. Starting a few years ago I noticed that on occasion my husband would smell so bad that it'd make me gag. Not body odor...it was coming from his mouth. But it would infuse his body and the whole house. I'd come home and the house would smell terrible. It'd last a few days then be gone.

    Morning mucus mouth

    I'm a very fit and healthy 25 year old and as long as I can remember, I have waken up in the morning with my lips/mouth as dry as can be and covered in mucus. It generally covers my tongue and roof of my mouth. I have lived in humid, high allergy cities and very dry non allergy cities and nothing seems to change in regards to this problem.
