In brief: White spots on tonsi

Commenest cause of white spots on the tonsills is streptocaccal infection.
But it can be caused by infectious mono nucleosis, some time white food particles may be stuck in the tonsillar crypts.

In brief: Tonsil stones

There's a lot of misinformation about "exudate", "collagen masses" and so forth.
If the tonsils feel normal otherwise, these are tonsilloliths and they are a minor nuisance. The safest way to remove them is with a water pick, a mirror and a penlight.
