Before getting into getting into the best tonsil stones cures, I want to quickly clarify something, I want to make sure that you understand something, which is that tonsil stones and tonsillitis are NOT the same thing.
Tonsillitis is the inflammation of your tonsils. What happens with tonsillitis is that your tonsils becomes red and swollen. This occurs because of a virus or bacteria has caused an infection of your tonsils.
Tonsil stones on the other hand, occur when the tiny pockets in your tonsils (“tonsil crypts”) are infected, not the tonsils themselves (tonsillitis), although tonsillitis and tonsil stones can be present at the same time. If you can see whitish or yellowish stones in the back of your throat, you know you likely have tonsil stones. Bad breath is another common symptoms of tonsil stones.
Ok, so now let’s talk about how to cure tonsil stones. Although tonsil stones is not a serious medical condition in that you’re not going to die from it, but it does seriously negatively affect how you live your life and the quality of your life. At least I know it did for me. Tonsil stones can be painful, and nobody likes have bad breath.
There are a number of ways of treating tonsil stones without having the need to go to a doctor, have surgery, or take antibiotics.
One way that may work for you, is to simply try to cough the stones out. Coughing the tonsil stones out is definitely not the most effective and comfortable way, but it is a way.
A better way to get your tonsil stones out is to gently poke them out with a cotton swab. Some people even use a toothbrush, but I’m definitely more comfortable with a Q-Tip. When using this method, be careful not to poke too deep or hard. You don’t want to cause an infection in the mouth.
Another way to get rid of tonsil stones at home is to fill a syringe with salt and warm water, and flood the tonsil stones loose. You may also try gargling with salt water to loosen them up; doing this repeatedly will eventually make it easier to expel.
If you are able to reach the stones with your fingertips, you can try to scrape them off.
Another tonsil stone treatment is to use high pressured water jets that will act as laser to loosen the stones.
