    I don't know.. Seems like a game of fishing to me.

    Only googled and found out the name half hour ago. Rack gets freaked out.

    If you are getting them that frequently I'd check with your doctor.

    I've heard vaping can cause them, but as I don't think you do that my post is pretty pointless

    I used to get them when I was younger and lived at home. It was always a give away that I was coming down with a throat infection. Often if I squeezed them out it would go away. They're absolutely disgusting though.

    I get them occasionally. Not pleasant.

    Went to the doctors about it but they didn't really do anything about it or seem to care much lol.

    I got antibiotics, but then that's all my old doctor used to do. Stopped going in the end.

    apparently there are two types of these.

    One is true tonsil stones which are pretty rare (wiki) and other is when you have bits of rotten food that gets stuck near your tonsils then the rot and form a kind of stinky white shet which is common in people. Its when you have holes in your tonsils and food gets stuck inside, gets rotten and becomes white bacterial thing. I've had a few, I always try pushing them out with a cotton bud stick. Disgusting.

    I get these about 3 times a year. Very small and only the one. Always thought it was a build up of plaque
