Have you noticed those yellowish-white chunks in the back of your throat that smell unpleasant? If you have, then you probably want to understand why and what is that.
They are signs of your bad health, and that you will be having a health problem.
If you accidentally have them in your mouth, then you should continue reading. They are named the Tonsil stones or Tonsilloliths, and they develop when the stinky little lumps of mucus, debris and trapped dead cells harden or calcify in the tonsil pockets.
Overwhelmed by bacteria or viruses, they swell and become inflamed, a condition known as tonsillitis.
The symptoms are numerous and include:
• Throat pain or tenderness
• Redness of the tonsils
• A white or yellow coating on the tonsils
• Loss of appetite
• Ear pain
• Difficulty swallowing or breathing through the mouth
• Fever, chills
• Bad breath
The bad breath may be the first thing you will notice and as a solution to both of the problems can be non-alcoholic mouthwash or gargle with salt water.
