I've just spent a very satisfying and enjoyable 20 mins watching tonsil stone videos. I even managed to get some from my own tonsils afterwards. I feel great.

Does anyone else get them?

Why are they not gagging

I really enjoyed that. Cheers. Excellent

I can poke my right tonsil without gagging but if I touch the left one I'll gag instantly. Luckily only the right side gets stones.

That was bloody BEAUTIFUL!! 😍😍 I am DESPERATE for DP to get some!!!

I need to get a couple out but have no idea how - any tips??

Yoko cotton buds are your friend.

I used to get these all the time.

I WISH I could de-stone my own tonsils. My right tonsil is permanently full of stuff, and although one might spontaneously pop out every couple of months, I just can't get near my tonsils without gagging. I even bought a lighted tool from Amazon but nope. I've been trying for years to do it.

Drives me mad!

My daughter gets these all the time !! She takes great delight in shoeing me when she coughs them up shockshock

I get them sometimes. Dug out a really big one a few months ago. Oddly satisfying.

sausage hmmm...but isn't it a bit scratchy??

That was unbelievably revolting!

I just use my index finger, the same side to the tonsil stones and then my iPhone torch held in the other hand.

YokoUhOh Fri 16-Sep-16 20:37:12

funkin yes, I've just done the finger/iPhone torch and it seems to have done the job!

I have saved this photo my daughter sent me of her tonsil stone (God knows why?), just for you sporners.

I'm not a sporner myself, but your threads are so bloody funny this is my way of saying thanks.

YokoUhOh Fri 16-Sep-16 20:40:11

sang my eyes! That's surely visible (and smellable) from space!

tshirtsuntan Fri 16-Sep-16 20:43:13

What is the stuff? Is it from old infections or just like internal blackheads? I am repulsed/fascinated in equal measures.

YokoUhOh Fri 16-Sep-16 20:53:44

tshirts tonsils have crypts where old food collects and calcifies (tonsil stones). If you shine a light in your mouth you might even see some of your own!

i feel sick and have spent this week trying to squeeze my abscess. It emptied and left a tiny hole in my arm. but this is grosser.

My eldest had terrible problems with them, getting several out every week! His breath stank and he had a constant sore throat from all the poking about.

In the end he had his tonsils out.

I am glad, because he really suffered - some of them were HUGE!

but there's a bit of me that misses being shown them blush

tshirtsuntan Fri 16-Sep-16 20:58:23

Ooh, thanks yoko off to find a torch wink

I used to use the end of a toothbrush in the days when I still had tonsils...
Has anyone seen the video of the salivary gland stone by the way? I can't post a link as the only one I know of is from that newspaper.

peaceloveandbiscuits Fri 16-Sep-16 21:00:31

DH gets them but won't let me get at them sad his breath is rank when he's got one, the minger.

YokoUhOh Fri 16-Sep-16 21:02:51

I think you can get rid by gargling with salt water, too, although you don't get the satisfaction of inspecting them offending item after removal...

How do you know you have them if you can't see them?
