Dreaming of bad breath indicates a fear of intimacy or getting any closer to a particular person or situation. To dream that you are the one with bad breath indicates that you are holding back out of fear. Dreaming that someone else has the bad breath suggests that another may be withholding from you also out of fear. In your waking life, look for irrational fear surrounding a situation and resolve it or understand that this is not for you at this time and let it go. On a more physical level, a dream that includes breathing of any kind is also a reminder to breathe with more consciousness regardless, and begin to uplift your general existence.
