Bad breath

For the past week, I've experienced sour breath and an oral odor that is reminiscent of morning breath. The smell lasts the whole day and doesn't dissipate. I noticed that it happens when I drink a sugary liquid such as soda. And even if I brush my teeth or scrape my tongue the smell is still there. Before when I drink something sweet I've never had bad breath. Now I cannot drink something without experiencing foul breath. It does not happen when I drink water or diet soda.

Also, I have a white coating on my tongue that constantly comes back. For example after dinner,  I brushed my teeth and cleaned my tongue and five minutes later, my  tongue is white again. How is that possible? Could I have candida?

It doesn't sound like thrush but I would have it checked out by an oral surgeon.

maybe your mouth is dry, it's better to keep yourself hydrated. you can chew on sugarless gum or drink water, and keep away from things that can make your mouth dry like smoking and alcohol. just know what causes your bad breath so that you can have a sure-fire way to end it. try http://www.oramd.com/bad-breath-cause.htm , maybe it can help you.

I had a similar problem and my friend recommended this toothepaste to me:

It's an all-natural, toxic-free toothepaste that doesn't contain fluoride.  Apparently, fluoride isn't as good for your teeth as people thought, so this dentist developed a better way to protect one's teeth from bacteria.  I'd give this a shot though - it's a lot cheaper than going to an oral specialist.
