In brief: Tonsillar crypts

Are notorious for accumulating food debris, mucin, bacteria, inflammatory and immune cells.
These things lead to erythema (redness), tenderness, tonsillar stones, tonsillar abscesses, and purulent discharge. Frequent upper respiratory illnesses, strep throat, viral tonsillitis etc. All can lead to exacerbating the problem. Best to see ENT for eval and/or pcp. As far as affecting your brain -no.
