I have had really bad tonsil stones for a while, I need to remove them daily and my tonsils bleed, is this serious or am I doing something wrong?
Tonsil stones are the result of chronic changes in the crypts of the tonsil. Actually food gets stuck and hardens in the crypts and causes a local infection and thus bleeds. The food putrifies and is smelly when it is expressed from the tonsil. You need to get your tonsils out. You can try a water pic jet spray to help clean out the crypts.
But at the end of the day, they need to be out. ...Read more
