It' s like his tongue tastebuds doesn' t work. Everything taste disgusting. He can not even drink coffee then. Please do you have a slight solution?

Hallo Karen
The common causes of taste disorders are:
1. Ear nose and throat infections
2. Radiation therapy for cancers
3. Exposure to certain chemicals(insecticides and some medications like antibiotics and antihistamines)
4. Head injury
5. surgery to the ear, nose, and throat
6. Poor oral hygiene and dental problems
Treatment will depend on the cause.
