How can I get rid of a tonsil stone?
How can I get rid of tonsil stones without shoving anything down my throat? It is really bothering me and I can’t scrape it out or pull it out because I can’t put anything down my throat to get it out.
A lot of people recommend using a water pick but that always seemed to make a big mess and it was hard to get a good shot. I originally used a turkey baster with warm water to get a good forceful shot. Now I use the kitchen sink sprayer. Lean your head over the sink with your mouth open to allow the water to fall back into the sink, use warm water and be sure to tighten your throat to expose the stones and prevent you from inhaling the water. Try not to spray the very back of your throat since this will trigger the gag reflex. This takes a little getting used to but it will flush out all the tonsil stones. Even the ones your not seeing. I hope this helps. I’m still trying to fine a permanent cure.
