At the opening to my throat, I have openings that make like white, smelly clumpy things. It happens often. Is this normal?

In brief: Tonsilloliths.
I completely agree with dr. Melder's opinion except the use of 4-6 weeks of antibiotics.
This therapy, in my opinion, is much too long and invites the definite possibility of resistant bacteria in the back of the nose. I have had good success with tonsillectomy to completely eradicate this problem.
