My dd (23mo) has breath that smells like vinegar. I've noticed this smell off and on over the last few days. Does anyone know why? She hasn't eaten anything vinegar-y lately. I'd appreciate any info. I seem to vaguely remember that it's a sign for something.
She may be allergic to something. Vinegar breath is a sign of an acid condition, and allergic reactions cause acidosis.
Homeopathic Calc. Carb. sometimes helps kids with a very sour smell. It can actually help eliminate a milk allergy. But go to a homeopath for advice, it can be really complicated.
Thanks myjo! I will look into that. Dd has had food allergies so that would make sense.
My dd had vinegar breath when she had bad reflux. If your child has food allergies, definitely go see a health specialist about it (doctor, homeopath, etc...) your child could be having a reaction to something. GOod luck!
That was the signal last month that made DS's ped, recheck his refulx and sure enough its back worser than before.
