My right tonsil felt irritated so i looked at it and it has a white spot right in the center of it, it seems like it's tonsillolith, what to do ?
I have sore throat & tonsillolith. I frequently have tonsillitis and pharyngitis simultaniously and mostly at the same time. What could be the cause?
Do tonsilloliths always pop out, or do some just slowly shrink? I've been gargling with salt water and every morning they look a little smaller.
Mine pop out...: Usually after they get to a certain size of with a big sneeze. I haven't had then for a while, but mine never "shrunk." If it works for you, keep going with it. ...Read more

Yellow for a Fellow: Discoloration in the back of the throat may be due to several reasons. Most commonly its due to mucous mixed with food particles and bacteria that coat the mucosa.

Candida infection is another cause. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
