BAD BREATH

My 5 year olds breath has been really stinky for the last few weeks even after we brush her teeth, it kinda has urine smell to it. Do you think I should be concerned? I was thinking of calling the doctor and asking him.

  • I'd call the doctor or dentist. Bad breath can actually be a symptom of certain stomach problems and other health issues. She's probably fine, but considering it's been a week, I'd get her check out. Best of luck, hon!

  • I'd say a doctor and/or dentist visit is in order. Smelly breath is an indication of so many health issues.
