Re: I have white stuff on my tonsil.What does it mean?

Probably just a tonsillith (sp?). These are normal and can smell like sulphur. They form in little holes, basically its trapped food, saliva and/or mucous. If you have no other symptoms there probably isn't an issue. If you develop a sore throat maybe try going to the doctor to get a strep test. Try gargling with salt water to get them out, or search online. Some people use those water-pik things.
