Sounds like could be tonsilloliths (tonsil stones). Can try water pick to remove them.

See ur Doc: You need examination, blood work and possible ultrasound of the neck to rule out thyroid problem or blood disorders.

Tonsillitis: White areas on the tonsils with soreness in the throat means tonsillitis which could be due to a viral infection, strep or infectious mono. Have a throat culture at least to check for strep which should be treated with appropriate antibiotics.
