Tonsil stones & Allergies: Can allergies cause Tonsil stones in your throat?

Estella used to have a happy life..

Until one day she was affected by a serious allergy. That’s it she started getting those gross stones in her throat. From that day onwards, whenever she was affected by allergies, she started getting tonsil stones again and again.

But why?

Why is this happening? Can food, pollen, dust, fur, and other allergies really cause tonsil stones? If so, how is it possible?

First of all, How is a tonsil stone formed?

Without knowing how a tonsil stone is actually formed, it is almost impossible for anyone to understand/follow the process of tonsil stone elimination. This is the reason why I repeat this section in almost all of my articles.

Now, How is a tonsil stone formed on one’s tonsils?

Tonsils are important glands that are present on both sides of a person’s throat. Medically, when stones are formed on these tonsillar glands, we call them the tonsil stones or the tonsilloliths.

A tonsil stone is nothing but a hardened calcium particle, that is a homogeneous accumulation of mucus, dead cells, bacteria, food particles, and other waste materials. See How to get rid of my tonsil stones Quickly tonight?

Due to a variety of reasons, the above-said materials, get to accumulate on the crypts of one’s tonsils. For days and weeks, when they keep getting accumulated near the tonsillar crypts, they are under a constant action of bacteria and saliva. Thus the debris of particles slowly hardens up (after weeks later) finally forming a smelly calcium tonsil stone. See The Natural way out to eliminate tonsil stones completely

Now.. Coming to the main point..

Does an Allergy cause tonsil stones? What is the actual truth?

The straight answer to this question is Yes..

Yes, Allergies do cause tonsil stones in one’s throat. Although they don’t form the stones directly, almost all types of allergies do promote the formation of tonsil stones. In fact, this is the reason why many people who suffer from regular allergies are more prone to tonsil stones.

So now comes the next question…HOW?

3 Ways allergies cause/promote the formation of Tonsil Stones?

Many websites, across the internet, give out the same bookish remedies which don’t work for real people. Unlike them, we are giving complete research-backed solutions from almost 7 Years. Thus you will not find this practical content anywhere else across the internet.

1. Allergies cause Post nasal drip:

The biggest reason why allergies cause tonsil stones is due to the post nasal drip they cause. Whenever you develop an allergy, they strongly irritate the nasal passages, causing a lot of mucus to develop in the sinuses. Thus, at times, this mucus slowly drips down (at the back of the throat) and settles down near the holes of the tonsillar crypts. This is what is known as the post nasal drip.

So, when the post nasal drip happens and the mucus keeps settling in the tonsillar crypts, they accumulate a lot of bacteria, dead cells finally forming tonsil stones repeatedly. See “I am getting these stones again and again” What should I do?

2. Allergies result in swollen inflamed Tonsils:

Another important reason why an allergy causes tonsil stones is due to the swelling of tonsils. Although I don’t say all of them, most of the allergies do cause swelling of one’s tonsils. In fact, many doctors even consider swollen tonsils as a primary symptom of allergies.

So, when you are affected by swollen tonsils (caused by allergies), you are likely to accumulate various types of particles easily. In simple, you are more prone to debris accumulation, more prone to bacteria accumulation, and more prone to forming tonsil stones.

3. Allergies do affect one’s Lymphatic system:

Tonsils are one of the crucial glands of the Lymphatic system. According to wowremedies, allergies directly affect this lymphatic system causing a huge amount of allergen excretion near the tonsils. So when this happens, these excreted allergens are likely to accumulate bacteria forming tonsil stones in one’s throat. See Should I Get my Tonsils removed? Is it the best way out?

Some of the Most common allergies that cause Tonsil stones:

By now, you could have already understood, how and why allergies cause tonsil stones in one’s throat. So, Here are some of the most common allergies which are very much likely to develop tonsil stones.

a) Dairy Allergy:

In my book “Tonsil stones eliminator” I mentioned that one of the most common allergies that develop tonsil stones is the Dairy allergy. Yes, a Dairy allergy is nothing but the body’s resistance to a particular type of protein present in the milk. Thus when they eat any dairy products like milk, cheese, butter etc, it results in excess production of mucus and post nasal drip.

As dairy is one of the common thing included in everyone’s diet, many people often ignore this allergy and continue consuming dairy products. As a result, it results in excess mucus production and also the tonsil stones.

b) Rhinitis allergy and Sinusitis:

Some types of allergies cause problems like rhinitis and sinusitis. Beleive me, if you are affected by such problems, you will have severe mucus and post nasal drip almost all the day. Thus with such continuous mucus secretions and accumulations, a person will very much definitely develop tonsil stones.

So, if you have problems like rhinitis, sinusitis, then they could be the real reason behind your tonsil stones.

c) Dust Allergy:

Although some people can strongly resist dust and smoke, many people are very much sensitive to such conditions. Thus, such people who have a dust allergy, are regularly prone to colds throughout the year.

So, when they develop colds on a regular basis, they are likely to suffer from swollen tonsils and post nasal drip, which together leading to tonsil stones. This is the reason why people who have recurrent colds develop more tonsil stones and bad breath.  See An almost instant way to stop tonsil stones and its bad breath


In spite of the fact that these are common allergies, there are several other types of allergies also, which result in the formation of one’s tonsil stones.
