    I've had swollen tonsils for years (it's not tonsillitis), from time to time white puss ciss things develop on the sides. They are gross, kinda hard, crumble and smell like bad breathe. (Also I brush, floss, Listerine, peroxide a good amount). So I just realized these zit like things that develop on my tonsils seem to be deeper in my tonsils than I realized, thus why they are swollen. I never have sore throats from this either.


    Any ideas?

    apparently they are called tonsillolith or 'tonsil stones'. It's times like this I wish I had a Doctor.

    I am not an expert...
    I get them sometimes too. :)
    I thought it was just food stuck there, but its not.
    I'm able to sticky my finger deep inside my throat and push them out, but they keep coming back..

    WebMD - Better information. Better health. might be a better place to ask.

    You should probably seek medical care.

    Hamas, tonsil stones is right.

    If you have a stick or stick-like object you can poke them out (the sticks you stick in your ears is good). A waterpik MAY work, but this probably will irritate your tonsils badly. You can use a lighter stream of water if you have something that will spray it.

    Gargle warm water or hydrogen peroxide.

    I think you have an STD. Stay away from the penis, bro.

    but seriously, go see a doctor... what you described does not good.

    I suggest you see a Doctor.. You can have your tonsils' removed.. I had mine removed at age 6.. just a suggestion.. but seek medical advice first from a physician.

    it's pretty common. the only reason youd get tonsils removed is if it bothers you a shitload and it smells really really bad.

    its either this, or you got strep dick.
