Interesting Pathophysiology Of Tonsillitis Information:
Tonsil Stones are irregularly shaped, whitish/yellow, foul-smelling globs of mucous and bacteria that get caught in the tonsils. 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 which literally means 'tonsil stones'.
Typical methods and practices for cleaning out tonsil stones:
One method is to use a metal long handled spoon 7.5 inches. You would have to force the stone out from beneath. Using this method works easier if the stone is older and harder. You can even use tweezers to pluck the stone out. The use of pulsating irrigation to clear out the crypts of gathered debris may also help (using an adjustable unit at a low pressure setting or a needleless Monoject syringe to prevent yourself from damaging tissue.) Alternately medicine droppers (especially one with a curved tip) are utilized to suck out the more compact stones. Using such a medicine dropper to first irrigate the area with saline which may help to bring the tonsil stone to the surface from which it can then be more easily sucked out with the dropper. To get relief from gagging people sometimes think about using everyday things, such as toothpicks, as small tools instead of using a much larger finger. This isn't suggested due to the danger of the short lightweight toothpick/object being released and breathed into the throat. Use extreme caution when trying any of the methods in the above list. The tonsils and throat are extremely delicate, and can be hurt or inflammed very easily.
The first time I ever had tonsil-stones, I coughed up some weird looking lumps that were off white in color. The only real facts I knew about them at the time was that they were terrible smelling, and this fact came to light when I squished them between my fingers. I also had no clue as to where they came from.
They would come and go, appear and disappear at all the worst times you could think of. My first trip to my doctor to actually ask him about them got me a vague answer about some sort of throat infection and a dose of antibiotics which didn't get rid of squat! I swear I made 5 different visits and was put on three different prescriptions none of which did a bit of good.
