      Tonsil Stone! Help!

      So about a week ago, I felt something in the back of my throat, over to the right side, like a small piece of food was stuck in it. This feeling went away for a few days, then came back. I opened my mouth, looked, and saw a frigging piece of white tonsil stone. I thought it was food at the time, therefore "it would go away eventually", but it's still hanging around!

      It's been a week and it's really freaking me out. I don't have Q-tips to remove it, so I'm going to the doctor on monday to see if they can get it out. In the mean time, does anyone have other remedies I can try? It's not large, but it's not tiny either. I tried gargling and it didn't work.

      Posters get a "thanks" for any suggestions.

      Maybe you could go buy some Q-tips since you are prepared to go to the doctor. I don't know what a tonsil stone is, I never heard of one. I will google it.

      It's too late; my dad won't drive me.

      Anyways, tonstil stones - they're pretty nasty.

      Edit: I managed to get some Q-tips and got it out after ten minutes of trying. An hour later, another one appeared and I took it out too. I'm wondering if I'm going to get another one.

      My GF seems to get them 1-3 times a yr

      It's just a build up of junk in the tonsil crypts. They don't harm you. My GF never knows she has one until it comes out on its own. They smell foul she says, lol

      Brushing and mouthwash are really the only things you can do... aside from surgery

      I'll try gargling mouthwash, then.

      Brushing well and gargling are ways to prevent it. If you already have it, just let it fall out unless it's bothing you that much

      Maybe read up on ways to remove it yourself

      I did, but it's really hard to remove them even with the techniques I've learned. I got two more and I've been brushing very well; it feels like there's something stuck in my throat (and every single one of them was on the right-hand side!)
