Another reader last week wanting advice on how to put a stop to recurring tonsiloliths, a condition where white globules emanate from the tonsils. Nasal sinus drops and gargling with antibacterial mouthwash apparently helps, says one reader. The high-dose vitamin C remedy, mentioned in the previous query on sore throats, is supposed to work on tonsils as well. However, other readers say forget about treating the symptoms and go straight to the cause of the problem. Check out the ingredients in your toothpaste. One reader says that tonsiloliths may be caused by sodium lauryl (or laureth) sulfate which is contained in some personal care products. Another reader who had tonsiloliths says it disappeared as soon as an infected tooth was extracted. Food allergies and chemical sensitivities may also be potential culprits.
