Home Treatment For Tonsil Stones

A lot of people live out their lives without even knowing what tonsil stones are. Tonsilloliths are small and hard yellowish or whitish lumps that form at the back portion of the throat, within the tonsillar crypts or the crevices of the throat, and it is mostly caused by poor hygiene. These lumps tend to differ in size. They can be very small like a size of breadcrumbs, and they can also be as big as a pea. When you have a stone, you get the feeling of having a foreign object sticking out of your throat, which is very uncomfortable. Having tonsilloliths doesn’t imply that there is something wrong with your system; however, it can be very annoying and irritating. If you are suffering from t-stones, there is nothing to worry about as there is a treatment for for you, and you can even do it at home.

In some cases, when the Tonsilloliths are just small, a treatment may just include coughing out until the stones make their way out of your throat. Sometimes, t-stones are accompanied with bad breath. In certain cases, these could mean that the stone is quite big and it needs a different treatment aside from coughing it out. Doctors would recommend using a medicine dropper to dislodge the chunks by suctioning them. This treatment would require assistance from another person, as it is quite difficult if you do it alone. In other cases, those who have great control of their gag reflexes, can make use of a toothbrush coated with some agent that could magnet these ‘throat rocks’ as you gently brush your tonsils.

Remember, keeping a good hygiene is important to prevent the development of stones. However it is sometimes inevitable to develop one, the best treatment is something that can be done inside your home.
