Rather than starting a new thread on this topic, I just wanted to ask if anyone who gets tonsil stones, mainly gets them when they are sick with a cold?
I am 23 and got a tonsil stone about a year ago and did not have any more until recently.
A month ago I started a new casual job where I am working with children - I got sick with a cold after working there on my first shift, and didn't know I had a tonsil stone until I sneezed and it came out of my mouth onto a tissue.
A couple of days ago I got another cold from work, and after looking at my throat last night, I noticed a tonsil stone on one of my tonsils.
Is it possible that i'm getting tonsil stones because i've been getting sick with colds?
