for a few months now there has been these (for lack of a better word) white balls in the back of my mouth. its not like pimples or anything like that, they just build up in the back and sides of my mouth with time until they break loose or unless i scrape them off. they have the most foul smell to them, they are kinda chalky, and again smell horrible. I dont have any other symptoms that i can see. has anyone heard of this or seen this before?

thanks in advance!

  • Had these most of my life. Dr.s don't seem all that interested, but in tracking the yukky stuff I find it primarily related to my MILK consumption. If I eat allot of cheese or drink Milk when I'm not craving it I will get these. Often they accompany a mild sore throat and getting rid of them will often releive the pain in the glands.

  • SOLUTION!!!I finally found the answer and just thought I would post it up so that if anyone else has this problem this will help =]I broke down and went to the doc. He said he had seen it before and it is called Tonsilloliths, also known as Tonsil Stones. He told me in addition to brushing and Listerine I should also use Hydrogen Peroxide (yes, the stuff in the brown bottle, mix 50/50 with water, and obviously dont swollow) He also wrote me a prescription, I dont have the bottle with me but if I am remembering correctly it is called CLINDAMYCIN. He told me to read up about it, so if your interested here's a link- http://www.bad--breath.net/art_tonsilloliths_tonsil_stones.htm?gclid=CIGZ1__DtI4CFQsdYAody0DF0g It has been about a week and I was seeing results within 48 hours!!!! Good luck to all!

  • Possibly tonsilitis. And I should know, as I have just had it. Just because my 'friend' wo had it sneezed on me lol. You will just have the spots for about a/wk and maybe some uncomfortable feelings in the head and such. ;)
