But, Ultradex mouthwash stopped mine smile

When I feel sad, I watch YouTube videos of people removing tonsil stones. I know I have a massive problem.

I get two tonsil stones. One in each tonsil. I LOVE getting them out.

I had no idea there was a picker for such a venture. Link?

I use the arm of my glasses to poke them out.

Ooh I'd like a proper tool for the job. I usually use cotton buds.

Littlegreyauditor Tue 07-Mar-17 21:27:51

There's a tool for this?! Why did no one tell me? envy

This is what you all need. Buy one immediately and come back and tell me how much fun you're having with it!!

(I never realised anyone else had tonsil stones until I started to see he YouTube videos...!)

MrsRhet, you won't regret it if you like really grim, disgusting stuff

TheGrumpySquirrel Tue 07-Mar-17 21:40:36

Can someone tell me what they are? I'm too scared to google. I once or twice had hard lumps come out of my throat they smell awful is that it? What causes them?

Littlegreyauditor Tue 07-Mar-17 21:44:38

Oh. Em. Gee.

This is the very thing I have been waiting for my whole life! [rubs knees]

Jengnr Tue 07-Mar-17 21:46:13

I'm not sure if I've ever had one but I think I really want one...

That's fucked up isn't it?

I want one of those massive blackheads too. :D

That is amazing and only a tenner! Buying it.

What are ear stones? Anyone have any clues?!

Tonsil Stones are lumps of calcified material that form in the fleshy pad at the back of the throat(*tonsils*). ... Tonsil Stones*are created when the trapped debris in the *tonsils calcifies. The tonsils are filled with crannies and nooks where bacteria, dead cells and mucus become clogged to.

Tonsil stones are this ^^ apparently

Loopytiles Tue 07-Mar-17 21:48:26

Wtf is a tonsil stone?

Loopytiles Tue 07-Mar-17 21:51:38

Googled: yeuch! Would definitely want rid of those!

BigBroIsWatching Tue 07-Mar-17 21:54:39

Omg I've found my people. . Literally two minutes ago, I just saw one. I currently have a sore throat and was using my torch to have a look for possible tonsillitis, when I saw the stone in all its glory. I haven't yet removed it...

MrsRhettButler Tue 07-Mar-17 21:56:35

Oh my God shock

<tiptoes out>

Weebleswobbles Tue 07-Mar-17 21:56:54

Definitely head to sporner corner here on MN

While you're en route .....

LBOCS2 Tue 07-Mar-17 22:00:18

Bigbro, my tools of choice are a long Kirby grip (the short ones won't get far enough back) to sort of scoop, and a head-torch to see - held in my other hand rather than on my head, obviously. Phone torch also works. Enjoy!
