Useful tips that the doctor gave me was to gargle with 3 percent hydrogen peroxide and minimize dairy intake.

I was suffering from bad breath. I started rinsing with salty water for every 2 hours and also i started using Listerine mouthwash twice a day. Slowly the bad breath problems were solved and now I have a healthy mouth.
