GMAN4LIFE : 8/13/2019 9:40 am

I used a dental pick set I got on Amazon. And a flashlight.
I like to roll them into a big pasty ball and smell them.

They are great for making pizza dough, bread, or home-made pretzels. It really kicks the yeast in the nuts upon activation.

It has a sour-dough like flavor.

Yums.
Get one of those plastic syringes

for irrigating ears.

I used that to blast them out and I haven't had any new ones in a while now. Water pick probably works too.

How old are you? I was 63 when I had mine taken out, I will be 71 next week. I fought them all my life. Why I waited so long for a simple surgery, I just chalk up to my Irish stubbornness!

i am 38. two doctors and dentist advised not to as it would just be for tonsil stones and nothing else. it would be different if it were for constant infections
I just showed this thread to my wife....

She is a recently retired OR RN. She said that is ridiculous.
As long as you keep those tonsils, you will have those "stones" Get a simple outpatient tonsillectomy from a reputable ENT and your problem will be solved forever.

Are you in New Jersey? I'm asking because I have seen the state of medical care for my now deceased Mother, Father and sister. In a nutshell, both and wife & I who saw NJ healthcare up close & personal for two years agree that medicine here in Las Vegas is much better!

cryptic tonsils ...Google it. Here'a link of a 38 year old woman by the name of Erica

This is spot on. I had horrible breath throughout my life. Brushing, mouthwash didn’t help. Went to an ENT, said I had Cryptic tonsils. Took them out the following week. This was in my 20s. Bad breath was gone.
If your tonsils are cryptic...
