Tonsil stones are that one problem, everyone feels as harmless. Many, even simply ignore them.
On the other hand, as days pass by one can clearly see an infection starting right down on their tonsils.
So what is the truth? Can tonsil stones cause infection? If Yes, then why do most people simply claim that they are simple harmless calcium globs?
First of all, How is a Tonsil stone formed?
Tonsils are one of the most important glands, that protect your inner body from outer bacteria, viruses, and other microbes. As a result, a number of particles like mucus, food particles, dead cells, bacteria etc accumulate on the tonsils.
This accumulation forms as a debris in the tonsil crypts, which hardens gradually to form a hard stone like structure which we call the Tonsil stones. See Where can I get a step by step clear guidance that helps eliminate my tonsil stones?
Now coming to the main point..
Can Tonsil stones cause infection? How is it possible?
In my book Tonsil stones eliminator, I mentioned that a tonsil stone is nothing but a buildup of a number of layers of bacteria, dead cells and food particles.
So, Tell me what happens, when bacteria are allowed to stay in one area for a long time? Slowly they start attacking the cells present in that particular area. Right?
The same is the case with tonsils too. If a tonsil stone is present on one’s tonsils, it strongly promotes the accumulation of various microbes on the tonsils. Moreover, the stone itself contains a lot of bacteria buildup, which makes a person’s tonsils full of bacteria and other microbes (especially near and around the stone)
Thus this presence of bacteria buildup slowly starts infecting the tonsil tissues and cells. This continues days after days finally causing a deep infection on your tonsil glands.
So, the answer to the question is YES..
Yes, A tonsil stone can definitely cause an infection and damage your White blood cells and tissues near your tonsils. See How to get rid of my tonsil stones Quickly tonight?
Although tonsil stones don’t directly cause infection. On the other hand, it indirectly provokes bacteria build up, which leads to an infection. This is the reason why many people still think that tonsil stones are simple harmless things.
Moreover, the presence of tonsils and tonsil stones can accumulate bacteria like the strep, and various other pathogens. Thus the presence of numerous bacteria near your throat and tonsils can lead to a number of problems like sore throat, strep throat and sometimes even tonsillitis.
What are the symptoms of Tonsil stone infection:
However, tonsil stones do not always lead to an infection, it may happen especially in cases of large tonsil stones which are not removed for a long time and in cases of recurring tonsil stones which come again and again. See “I am getting these stones again and again” What should I do?
Here are some of the symptoms of an infection near the tonsils –
- Yellowish white pus near the tonsil glands.
- Blood while removing tonsil stones.
- Pain near the tonsils in some cases.
- Recurrent throat problems.
- Feeling like some liquid is stuck near the back of the throat.
