Does HFMD cause bad breath?

I think my son has Hand Foot Mouth disease, he had all the symptoms except the rash on hands feet and diaper area though (we have a dr. appt tomorrow to make sure). I was just wondering in the moment though, does HFMD cause bad breath? The sores on his gums are mainly around his teeth (what teeth he does have, he is 12 months old) and only on his top gums. I've noticed he has STRONG bad breath at night/morning (don't we all, lol). OR is it more likely because he doesn't let me brush his teeth (because of the sores)? I'm hoping there is no sinus infection. Could anyone tell me about their experiences with HFMD? Thanks all!
