Hi, I used to have tonsils and the white spots meant a strip virus so anti-biotics. My spots never got any bigger than my little finger nail...just realized how ambiguous that sounded! Um about 1cm by 1cm!
Get checked out if you haven't already and speedy recovery to you :wave:

Marquita27: They can get really big and need to be addressed. The other poster there is talking about Strep virus or Strep throat. You need antibiotics for it. It's also contagious. Go get checked if you haven't already. I had it once and it lasted for 3 weeks until I could get over it. Remember to take probiotics or eat yogurt when you're on the antibiotics.

If you are talking about tonsil stones, they can get pretty big! There is no real cure for them - other than a tonsillectomy - but you can pop or rinse them out...though it is time consuming and they just come back.
