Tonsil Stones - What An Odor!
by Linda Wells
I've had tonsilloliths since I was a small child. I'm 58 years old now. When I would cough up one when I was a child, I would tell my mom who told me that she got them, too.
Until today, I didn't know what they were called or what caused them, although I had an idea that they were coming from my tonsils. I just thought an overabundance of stuff was in my tonsils and just needed to come out.
They do smell AWFUL! I know I've had bad breath for quite awhile and haven't been able to get rid of it, although I'm an avid tongue scraper.
It's nice to know there are a lot of other people who have the same problem.
