Tonsil Stones Keep Coming Back
Biofilm: So, these stones are a part of a chronic tonsillitis. The 'perfect' way to get rid of them is to have the tonsils out. But, most people don't want to do that so, why not try to brush the tonsils or use a waterpik (or other type of jet) to blast them? Then, you can try mouthwash with Chlorhexidine in it to kill the bacteria. Good luck!
Tonsil stones.: Tonsils are filled with nooks and crannies where bacteria and dead cells and mucous become trapped. The debris becomes concentrated in white formations that occur in the pockets and tonsil stones, or tonsilloliths, are formed when this trapped debris calcifies. This tends to happen most often in people who have chronic inflammations like sinusitis. Cannot prevent them except tonsillectomy.
What would one or two white spots on your tonsils mean? Would it be tonsilitis, thrush, or tonsil stones? They clear up and come back.
Tonsils: Tonsils may develop small white patches that are simply dried surface secretions and have no medical concern. If there is no abnormal asymmetry of tonsils, no redness or pain then infections, such as strep or mono are unlikely. Thrush tends to cause scattered white thin exudate on the palate and cheeks or throat, and less so on the tonsils.
Should I see a doctor? Do I have tonsil stones? Okay so about a year ago my tongue developed white bubbles in the back. I figured it'd go away so I ignored it. Then, my tongue started to get white stuff on it, which I would scrap off but it'd come back so
Depends: Tonsil stones are little white stones visible in the tonsils (located on the lateral areas of your throat). People with tonsil stones feel like there is "something annoying" stuck in their throat and are constantly trying to clear it. A film on your tongue is not unusual. Most people need to brush or scrape their tongue regularly to clean this film away.See 1 more doctor answer

Rule out tonsillitis: LINGULAR TONSILS under the tongue can become inflamed =tonsillitis and can cause halitosis. You need exam and have a throat culture.

Make sure to brush and floss teeth 3x/dy. Also use a specially designed tongue scraper
Three months back I had surgery to remove my tonsil stones to cure bad breath issue which I'm suffering from past 8 yrs, bad breath is still there.
My boyfriend has bad breath and little white things in back of his throat. Could these be the tonsil stones, and what do we do about it?
See the doctor: There are many things that can cause halitosis, and since this appears to be a change in the way his breath usually smells, and because of the whiteness that you see in the back of the throat, he should see his doctor to be evaluated. Although these are not likely to be tonsil stones, they do need to be evaluated. Good luck.
