Little white things in throat

Does anyone get those little white things that come out of your tonsils? They are about the size of those little nerd candies and they smell horrible! Is there any way to keep them from coming back?

  • Could also be yeast. I get them too when there is a build up in my body...hence the smell...the yeast ones normally come off easily on your finger and can be popped...

  • 9 times out of 10 when DD has had white things in her throat, it turned out that she had strep.

  • Only your doctor would know for sure. Make an appointment.

  • I get them. My tonsils are filled with holes because as a child my doctor refused to take them out. Gargle as much as you can- that helps to get them out, or get out all the mucus-y stuff that causes them.
