Tolsilith - Found in the tonsils small crypts in some people a combination of food particles, bacteria, and body secretions form in theses crypts and will occasionally dislodge into small hard nuggets called tonsiliths, or tonsil stones.
They are white/cream/yellow in colour and are approximately the size of a small pebble.
When broken open these have a repulsive smell. This is due to the particles which have been lodged in the tonsils for some time rotting etc.
They can be removed with a Q-Tip or by consistently brushing the back of your mouth.
Small white pellets from back of throat being coughed/appearing up in your mouth these are called Tonsilith
