But tonsil stones? Ever heard of them? Anyway, I hadn’t, so I figured I’d do what I do best when I came across a video on the subject… convey the details to you, my dear audience…

I must confess that my curiosity has no bounds when it concerns the human body.

Tonsil stones are something I should probably define first. I was completely unaware of their existence until I laid eyes on one.

Maybe everyone else is familiar with them; I could be completely wrong. Actually, it’s debatable…

Hard, whitish, or yellowish masses that develop on the tonsils are known as tonsil stones, according to the Mayo Clinic. They aren’t dangerous or uncomfortable, and you can typically cure them with over-the-counter medicines.

Tonsils are oval-shaped flaps of tissue at the back of the throat that help fight infections.

Tonsillar crypts, where tonsils are located, are the most common places for materials and debris to become trapped and form tonsil stones.

Anything, from food scraps and other waste to microorganisms like germs and fungi can fall into this category.

Tonsil stones are actually rather frequent, even if they aren’t necessarily symptomatic.

When they do, you could experience a variety of symptoms like foul breath, coughing, earaches, and sore throats.

In spite of the fact that tonsil stones affect an estimated three million Americans annually, the good news is that getting rid of them is a breeze.

Actually, there are a number of do-it-yourself approaches that can be employed to remove them, such as gargling with salt water or employing a delicate item, such as a cotton swab.
