But when these linings are irritated, they produce excessive amounts of mucous which then lead postnasal drip, a common and often mild symptom of sinusitis. However, if the condition is prolonged, it will eventually lead to sinus drainage bad breath.

The infection which caused sinusitis may also result to inflammation in the nasal passages. These passages connect your nose to the sinuses which then let air enter the lungs. Inflamed nasal passages meant narrowed channel due to congestion, which thus block the mucous from being drained normally. The trapped mucous then attracts sulfur-excreting bacteria which will then cause sinus drainage bad breath. This drainage has blood cells, dead sinus cells, pus cells and other molecules from the body which is a rich source of protein for these nutrient-utilizing bacteria.

Anaerobes, as they are commonly known, breed in oxygen-free environment, so the back of the tongue is an ideal place for them to stay. They move in small channels in between your tongue papillae and taste buds, waiting for food to come. When the food goes in (our mouth), they take all that they need and in doing so, generates stinking sulfur compounds as a result of their metabolism, which then results to bad breath for us. This condition is elevated as the excessive amounts of mucous, due an inflamed sinusitis, traps and “protects” these bacteria against oxygen, something they cannot stand, even in small amounts. But, like any other halitosis concerns, this can be treated, as long as you follow your doctors’ advice and recommendations with regards to your condition.

Aside from medications, one good thing that a person should recognize is the real cause of bad breath. There are other reasons such why you are experiencing such. Firstly, it may be a one of the side effects of the drug you are taking for any disease that you have. It can also be because of the food that you eat. If you are having a mild case of sinusitis, for instance, it is best to stay away from dairy products as this thickens the mucous in your nasal passages which could then make the situation worse. Spicy foods are also not advised as they leave a smelly residue in our tongues, which can elevate the matter. One should also drink plenty of water; the water hydrates not only the body but the mucous membranes as well. Hydrated membranes of the mucous prevent the excess mucous from going to the mouth; more formed saliva gives the mouth a better chance to cleanse itself.

Also, medications usually intended for sinusitis is enough to treat these drainage concerns. Medicines such as antihistamines, decongestants, nasal sprays and other over the counter drugs are effective not just in relieving congestions and inflammations but also in drying the excess mucous in your nasal passages.
