Waaa it hurts 😢

Ouchie! Can you wipe any off with a q-tip? I find that helps speed up healing.

I've not tried... I'm at gp tomo anyway for post natal check so I'll get her to look. I do normally get the odd tonsil stone.. which I poke out.. hope I've not encouraged infection by poking the stones out 😳

I'm impressed by the quality shot. That is a lot of stones

Yikes. Gargle with warm salt water and get down to the GPs

I too am impressed by my photographic skills.. DH less so.. thinks I'm gross 🙈

That's a fantastic picture Op (possibly not what you want to hear?) Looks like a shitfucktonne of tonsil stones.

You need to try poke them out and smell.

The smell of them is so incredibly rank.. the first time I ever got one I gipped when I smelt it 😂🤢. Don't think I dare poke this any more.. it's getting worse by the hour 😢

Antibacterial mouthwash will help with the infection, advice from my dentist for any throat infection or ulcers.

Tonsil stones also taste rank if they touch your tongue, or maybe it's the smell that makes my tongue want to shrivel up and die 🤢

Gargle with salt water several times a day, it reduces the swelling.
drink loads and loads. Not salt water, though!

There are antibiotics fine for breastfeeding, don't let gp tell you otherwise!

Babybeesmama Thu 17-Aug-17 11:27:43

Got some penicillin 👍🏻. I imagine I'll be left with some stones after this.. I'll report back with professional photographs 😂

Almost salivating in anticipation grin

You poor thing.

Oh no not placemarking, not me at all

MelsMam Thu 17-Aug-17 18:38:40

Shameless placemarking.

Oh god, I just googled tonsil stones. The videos shock
