Can Herpes Two Cause A Foul Taste In My Mouth?
I am a 50 year old and male. Recently I was confirmed positive for herpes 2. Can this cause a foul taste in my mouth in the mornings and through the day sometimes? I've also started taking herbal pills for viral infection of olive leaf extract and red marine algae (1 pill each everyday).
Herpes simplex 2 is found in the genital tract and will not explain the funny taste in your mouth.
