weird situation

I have these clumps of brown stuff that gathers at the back of my throat and comes up some times when I spit. I can feel them in the back of my throat and sometimes I cant get them to come up. When they do they are yellowish brown and they smell really bad. I am just wondering what they could be and if this is serious or nothing at all. I just think it would be weird to go to the doc and tell them that they would think I was crazy.

Hopefully someone can help me. Or tell what to do.

Re: weird situation

Do you smoke? or drink alcohol? I thinkthat is some kind of allergy..
I advise you not to spend any time and go to doc...

Re: weird situation

I used to get something similar. Mine were white (no, not strep). They would start small and then grow until they would get so large I could actually scrap them off with my nail (I know - gross). They also caused me to have bad breathe. I think they were contagious because my husband at-the-time also got them.

I went to an oral patholoigst who could never figure out what they were. They finally resolved on their own. You may want to try a strong course of antibiotics to see if that resolves the issue.

Just my two cents,

Re: weird situation

They are called tonsil stones or tonsiliths. They are not harmful but they are very bothersome. There is not much you can do for them. I got my tonsils removed. That's the only sure way, but a water pick to flush out the tonsils can help some.

Re: weird situation

It appears like the expectoration resulting from sore throat. You may like to try a homeopathic remedy called Silicea 30c. That can help get rid of this problem.
