    Tonsils stinks, but no tonsil stones

    Hey guys, hopefully someone can point me in the right direction for this
    I've suffered from mild bad breath for a few years now
    The things I've been doing daily or twice every day is to:
    irrigate my tonsils (plastic syringe or sometimes waterpik)
    gargle with listerine for like 5 minutes 2x a day
    with this routine I only get a tonsil stone every few weeks, but my tonsils continue to stink because of mucus that builds up within a hour of cleaning my tonsils
    I've been to the doctor and my GP prescribed me two rounds of antibiotics about a year ago
    Also, I went to an ENT who stuck this thing into my nose all the way through my sinuses and said maybe it is some GERD or PND
    for PND I've been taking some prescribed nose sprays and I don't believe I have acid reflux
    right now I'm going to try and schedule an ENT appointment and try to demand a tonsillectomy and try to get insurance to help pay for it since I'm in college and I don't have an immediate few grands.
    Also my tonsils are in the far sides of my throat so drinking water doesn't help, I have to gargle for like a minute and the tonsil has big crevices or crypts

    just to clarify, the bad smell is only from one tonsil, the other tonsil barely has any smell.

    thanks to any reply!
