Has anyone experienced this, and how did you deal with it? I cough these little white globs up every once in awhile, and I have a white coating on my tongue that persists no matter how much I brush and floss and rinse with Listerine, etc. My dentist told me to use a tongue scraper, which helps a little but hasn't cured the problem. I did some research and found that this is actually fairly common especially in people who have allergies (I do). The white things are called "tonsil stones" or "tonsilloliths". The only treatment I've found is from this Dr. Katz guy (www.therabreath.com). I'm leary because this guy owns dozens of domains, all of them made up to appear like personal experiences ("This is how I fixed my tonsil stones") and linking to his products. It screams "shady business practices" to me. If anyone here has experienced this and has any advice, I'd love to hear it. Also of note is that I do occasionally have slight amounts of blood in my saliva. Apparently this is "normal", as the stones cause bleeding of the tonsils when they come out. Are there "tonsil specialists" I should be seeing here?
