– [Voiceover] Have you ever coughed up little, white nuggets that smell terrible? If you have, congratulations, because you might have tonsil stones. Tonsilloliths, or tonsil
stones, typically consist of mucus, bacteria, dead
cells and other debris that collect in the deep
pockets of the tonsils and gradually condense into small, typically light colored globs. Most commonly, the stones are small, although, doctors have
reported individual cases of patients with stones
more than an inch wide. Sounds like a pain in the neck. Bacteria grows on this accumulated matter, giving rise to the infamous odor, which some people have
described as smelling like literal death, straight-up butts
and the devil’s butt crack. Having tonsil stones can
sometimes lead to bad breath. And it could even cause you to feel pain in your throat and your ears. So, how do you get rid of
these smelly stink bombs? Well, some people try a saltwater gargle to help ease the pain. And some try to push them out
using a disinfected object, like a finger or a Q-Tip. However, if the problem continues, or the pain is severe, you should probably go see a specialist. So, do you wanna see what a tonsil stone looks like in real life? Warning, warning, gross content ahead. (jazzy saxophone music) That was pretty gross. Now that you’ve finally
found out what these are, do you have tonsil stones?

  19. I used to always have to wait til they came up if I yawned or they got loose enough on their own or they just dissolved from gargling apple cider vinegar. I never could poke and prod at my tonsils due to my horrible gag reflex, but recently I discovered if I flex my tonsils, I can loosen them so they come up. It's still not fun, and I do gag, but it gets the job done and that's all I care about. Lately I've been getting one in the same spot like once a month, and it's annoying, but I'm glad I know how to get them out now.

  21. I used to get them like crazy and now it’s coming back. No matter how good I brush my teeth and tongue, this stuff will have your breath HUMMING.

  22. The tonsils function as the body's initial
    line of defense in the mouth. As integral parts of the immune system,
    these structures protect the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts by
    attacking any viruses, bacteria, and debris that enter the mouth. Your
    primary tonsils (the palatine tonsils) are located at the back of the
    throat, on the left and ride sides respectively. The adenoids (the
    pharyngeal tonsils) are near the nasal cavity, and the lingual tonsils
    are at the back of the throat. These structures can develop
    complications like tonsil stones.

    Many people undergo treatments for issues related to tonsil stones, as
    these lymphatic organs sometimes act as more of a liability to your
    health than an asset. When infection occurs, the tonsils can create
    significant health problems such as airway obstruction and greater
    susceptibility to repeated infections. Each tonsil is composed of an
    intricate network of crypts that contain cells that fight infection. If a
    foreign substance like a virus or a bacterium infects these crypts, the
    tonsils can trap the debris. Once the debris is trapped, it can combine
    with mucous from the throat or postnasal area and become concentrated
    into tonsil stones.

    Tonsil stones, also known as tonsilloliths, are the result of the
    trapped debris that has hardened inside crypts in the tonsils. These
    stones can be smelly and look like small, white chunks. They may
    sometimes become loosened and coughed up into the mouth. Individuals who
    suffer from chronic inflammation in their tonsils or repeated
    tonsillitis are the most at risk for experiencing tonsil stones, since
    frequent infections can cause the tonsils to become swollen, red, and
    inflamed continuously.

    If you are experiencing symptoms such as a sore throat, bad breath, or
    breathing issues, see your doctor or an ear, nose, and throat
    specialist. He or she can examine your head, neck, and mouth to
    determine the cause of your symptoms. If he or she observes that your
    tonsils are enlarged and have white, hardened stones, your healthcare
    provider may recommend the surgical removal of the stones. In some
    cases, the tonsils themselves may need to be removed to prevent frequent
    infections and stone-formation.

    We made a video on how to naturally get rid of tonsil stones, at home, naturally, with no surgery. You might also want to check it out.

  23. I don't understand why they exist. I hate them. I can't use saltwater because I don't have pain. Q tips choke me then I gag. I either have to swallow them or cough like a freak and get angry because it won't come out
