Stinky Tonsils - TMI!

Sorry to be so descriptive but I'm really confused .

For at least a year, I've been getting this vile infection like taste at the back of my throat when I'm eating . It's a bit off putting !

I couldn't work out where it's coming from .

Anyway , I read on here about tonsil stones . I had a fish about in my throat with a cotton bud and couldn't see any tonsil stones .

I did swab my tonsils with the bud and the bud stinks ! envy . This has to be where the taste is coming from.

I don't have any current sore throat or sign of infection .

Also , when I prodded my tonsils - my throat produced a thick , hard to swallow stringy saliva . The type that gets "stuck" in your throat and is hard to swallow . Is this normal ?

My tonsils aren't huge.

Any ideas?

Google tonsil stone. My DD had this after a throat infection years ago.....the Dr told me that it forms at the site of previous infection. Her breath stank, and she was very phlegmy and constantly tasting vile stuff in her mouth. We could see the bugger, it was that big. Fell out on its own though.
