Re: Cottage Cheese Like Stuff In Tonsils???
What your describing are Tonsil Stones (technical name: Tonsilloliths), It could be an infection, but it could also be Oral Candida...fatigue is a common symptom of Oral Candida as well as a white coating on your tongue, and if your tonsils are big enough, the tonsil crypts can fill with the yeast also. I have a few Questions: A) Do you eat a lot of dairy or crave dairy? B) When was the last time you were on antibiotics? C) Have you recently had a long virus? D) Do you suffer from allergies/ if so do they cause post nasal drip?
I ask because A) craving dairy products can be a symptom of Oral Candida (fatigue is a symptom also). Dairy products also cause people to produce a lot of mucus in their sinus area, which can cause post nasal drip, something that will fill the crypts with bacteria causing the stones.
B) Antibiotics can cause Oral Candida
C) Long viruses (such as Mono) can cause the tonsils to increase in size, allowing the tonsil cripts to fill with bacteria/food particals that cause the tonsilliothis, viruses can also cause fatigue.
D) post nasal drip means that you have constant mucus around your tonsil area that will fill the tonsil crypts with bacteria which turns into tonsil stones.
Several things cause the tonsil crypts to create the stones, finding the cause can, in some cases, prevent them. The quickest fix in the mean time is to rinse with mouthwash after every time you eat, and if you do eat a lot of dairy, I'd suggest cutting back and seeing if that helps. If you have any of the following questions that I asked, I can try my best to guide you to the right doctor/method in getting rid of the problem. Ane something to comfort you: In most cases the stones do not CAUSE bad breath, no one else can sense that they are there but you, however post nasil drip can cause it, as well as the Oral Candida.
