Bad smell in mouth

I am getting foul smell in mouth though it is hygiene. I could feel that the odour has its origin in my stomach. Whenever I take alcohol, I don't get this odour. So alcohol is a sort of medicine for me. can someone prescribe me the right and permanent medicine for my problem? Thanks in advance.

Hello, smoking and drinking reduces the Oral hygiene, even it looks clean and you get bad breath or halitosis, if you take alcohol you simply cannot recognize that smell,, but the smell always will be there, alcohol is not medicine for it. Smoking predisposes anaerobic infection of lower respiratory track (lungs) which also causes bad breath, this smell is not from stomach, please stop smoking and drinking, use medicated mouth wash, drink plenty of water. Dental bleaching will also help.
