My doctor found H Pylori in my system and I'm on my 2nd day of Amoxicillin, Clarithromycin, and Omeprazole 20MG.
For the first time in my adult life, my bad breath is completely gone. Nothing. No morning breath. No foul smell.
I was reading Dr. Marshall's wikipedia and it said that he also developed bad breath after infecting himself with H Pylori:
He was surprised when, only three days later, he developed vague nausea and halitosis (due to the achlorhydria, there was no acid to kill bacteria in the stomach, and their waste products manifested as bad breath), noticed only by his mother.
My question is, should I expect my bad breath to return after the antibiotics course or is it one of the symptoms that get eliminated forever as part of killing H Pylori?
Also, because my symptoms are getting better on my 2nd day, does that mean that the antibiotics is likely to be successful?
