    Question Any thoughts on what this could be?

    Ok so i have 4 white spots in my mouth near my tonsils but not on them. I thought they were tonsil stones at first but after trying to remove them i realized they are not. This is the first time this has happened and the spots are more similar to cankers than anything else I can think of. It looks like a pimple almost but a larger white head and no bump, just flat. It kind of tastes a bit like metal (why i thought it was tonsil stones). They have been here for about 5 days and are kinda of irritating. Most annoying when I swallow. No serious pains at all. Could it be some sort of infection?

    Well for canker sores, which this does sound like, there are two good options. Ask your dentist for a scrip for Magic Mouthwash which you gargle with -or- pour salt on them-which will burn like all get out but also get rid of them. If it's close enough, wet the tip of your finger, stick it in some salt and then press that on the sore.
