Postnasal drip not usually related to bad breath

from Chicago Tribune

Q: I've had a case of chronic postnasal drip for many years and as a result have very bad breath. Are the two related and if so, how? What can be done to treat bad breath due to postnasal drip?
A: Postnasal drip usually isn't related to bad breath. Instead, bad breath most often results from the breakdown of food in your mouth, bacteria in the tissues of your mouth or tonsils, dental problems, dry mouth or, rarely, an underlying disease. It is possible that your bad breath could be a result of a sinus problem, such as an infection. But in that case, you'd likely be experiencing symptoms in addition to postnasal drip. To determine what's causing your bad breath and what can be done, your situation needs more evaluation. more
