My husband came down with a mild cold a few days ago. Ever since then I can't stand the way he smells, particularly his breath which I can smell from anywhere in the room. He smells like rotting garbage to me and it makes me sick. I feel so bad! I am almost sure it's me... I wonder if he has a bad tooth and that is what I am smelling. I need it to stop because I am sending him away and making him feel bad.
Could very well be a sinus infection you're smelling. Those are foul and can make the breath smell like cadaver or a bad tooth. Poor him, and poor you!
