I have little white yellowish smelly things that come from pockets in back of my throat.what is this caused from?

Tonsilloliths.

Neck-throat
The surface of the tonsils in the throat have indentations called crypts. It is not uncommon for food particles to be caught in these crypts. They appear as yellow, white smelly things just as you have described. Although you may not like my recommendation, I have operated on a number of patients (tonsillectomy) and have cured all of them. Otherwise live with it.

I get these yellowish white smelly things sometimes in the back of my throat and I can push them out with my finger what are they?

Tonsil stones

Neck-throat
These are called tonsilloliths, or tonsil stones. They are not really stones, but are collections of dead cells, mucous, and calcium. They are not dangerous, but can cause discomfort and bad breath. Wikepedia has a pretty good entry on this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tonsillolith. You can remove them yourself or have them washed out, or you can have laser surgery to keep them from returning

Something in back of throat behind the uvula i think its mucus i keep swallowing it but more comes back it feels like.how to get it to STOP. IRRITATED?

Post nasal drip

Pharynx
Hello, you are experiencing a movement of mucus from the nasal cavity to the oropharynx. This mucus carries dirt, viruses, bacteria and chemicals your nose filters while breathing air. If this mucus dries, it thickens and causes irritation. Drink more water, use an OTC saline nasal spray. If the symptoms are associated with sneezing, an allergy could be present. An antihistamine should help.

I have these fleshy bumps in the back of my throat, and also a bump with a white head behind my tonsils what is it?

Difficult to know

Neck-throat
Without seeing these and being able to perform a full exam it is nearly impossible to tell what they are with any accuracy. If it is behind your tonsil the potential for a retrotonsillar abscess with major complications exists, and strongly recommend that you see a doctor ASAP.

I get white smelly stuff comes up from the back of my throat. Comes straight up and I have to spit it out. What is it?

Other Symptoms?

Heterosexual
How do you feel otherwise? Smoke? This could be coming from your sinuses, or your stomach, or even your lungs. How long has this been going on for? Just when you wake up, or throughout the day? If it persists, if you can cleanly catch some of "the stuff" (without mixing it with your saliva) save it and get it examined.

Am 37 weeks pregnant and suffering from sinusitis have very sore face and smelly yellow mucas in nose snd back of throat?

Don't hold on treat

Sinusitis
Amoxicillin 500 mg 3-4 times per day and even, if no comtraindications, low dose oral steroid; prednisone 10 mg 1 3x per day, then 1 2x per day, then 1 per day for 2 days. It doesnt cross placenta and will decrease inflammation. Facial soreness, may be pressure or infection, depending on duration may be viral but I'm biased to treat aggressively, steroid is low dose, need 2 B better 4 babe.Gd luc
