I am so sorry about your experience. It sounds horrible! Sounds like a bacterial infection and a systemic Yeast/Candida infection. Antibiotics will probably be needed, but it will make the smell MUCH worse! Then youíll have to change your diet, work on getting excess mucus out of your body, then try natural antifungals. This will get things to a more manageable level. Then you will most likely need prescription antifungals. You breath will improve and the taste in your mouth will be amazing (like water). Itís going to be hard, but you will get there. You will have to forgive yourself for passing the Candida along to others. Doctors donít tell you that itís contagious! And, most of the time you donít know that you have excess yeast unless it shows up as a vaginal yeast infection. I never knew it until recently. Keep plugging along and you can change this whole thing around. Try eating vegan for a while... to prepare your body to heal. Good luck.
