Bad taste can occur from different causes.

It may occur from mouth conditions like stomatitis or inflammation/ infection of mouth , gingivitis or inflammation of gum , glossitis etc.

These can be reflux of acid from stomach, respiratory tract infection , sinusitis or post nasal drip etc.

Sometimes deficiency states, medicines can cause it.

You should get an examination by your GP.

Flossing alone may not help.

You should get it checked by a dental surgeon.
