Bad breath can come from deep in the back of the throat when tonsilloliths become trapped in the crevices of the tonsils. These small smelly white balls (can also be yellow, beige or large) are clusters of food particles, sulfur producing bacteria, dead cells and mucus secretions that build up and become trapped.
What are the Symptoms Of Tonsil Stones
- The first symptoms of Tonsilloliths are a feeling of something being stuck in the back of the throat.
- A chronic cough or sneezing which may loosen and reveal the presence of calcified stones for the very first time.
- These clusters of white bumps create a need to constantly clear the throat.
