  • Yes, I would tell her. Probably she has tooth decay or gingivitis. Both can cause bad breath. Acid reflux and gastro problems can also. Those are harder to treat, because brushing doesn't make it go away.
    A really good friend should tell her in private, and with some humor if you can.

  • Start by saying, "Ok, this is going to be awkward, but I have to tell you because you are my close friend... Often your breath smells bad, and I figured you probably didn't realize it."

  • Just say, your breath stinks.. I'm not one to twiddle my thumbs, if your a good friend then just tell her. Wouldn't you want her to tell you?, if it was your stinky breath? Amazing is we can tell one another, some of our most secret thoughts. But we can't tell one another your breath stinks.. We can even go into a dressing room, when shopping and help each other, with trying on clothes. Maybe see her in her, bra if she can get a top to close right when trying on clothes..But we can't tell one another your breath stinks.We can go out partying with friends, and have to much to drink, and the friend needs your help in the bathroom, because she throwing up, and feels like she going to pass out.So we hold their heads, so not to pass out in the toilets. But we can't tell one another your breath stinks...

  • This question would be a good one to do on a Poll just to see how many people would let a friend know or not know that their breath stinks & then explain why. Why don't you try it & see what kind of answers you get! Should be interesting to know.
