  • Tonsil Stones are irregularly shaped, whitish/yellow, foul-smelling globs of mucous and bacteria that get caught in the back of the throat. They form in the tonsil crypts which are simply small pockets or divots that appear in everyones tonsils. The scientific name for these white globs is tonsilloliths.

  • I get them really bad and I have sinus problems really bad which is why I get them. I started using a netti pot and clearing out my sinuses that way and gargling with salt water and removing them with a qtip daily and now my breath doesn't smell like butt. If you look in your throat and use a qtip you can see them they hang out back by your tonsils. I hate these things.
