Default Tonsil Stones?

Has anyone dealt with them? They are disgusting and I would like to know how to prevent them if you've had success.

I get them and they are the worst! I haven't really ever tried much to get rid of them aside from digging them out with my fingers and wishing I had my tonsils out as a kid.

My doc said they are often allergy related and mine are definitely a LOT worse in the fall and spring when the allergens peak. She suggested local raw honey as a possible help for the allergies.

I just googled these and wish I hadn't. That looks so unpleasant.

I am a mutant and was born without tonsils, so I'm no help. Would gargling with....something? break them up?

I asked my doctor to take my tonsils out because of them and he said no. If anyone has solutions (like honey--thanks, I'll try that) I'm interested too.

I'm in the same boat! I had no idea they were a 'thing' and I totally get them. Mine are definitely allergy/sick related.

Why did I Google this

I had no idea this existed, but I've never had them!
