But, why are your Tonsil stones green in color?
Though the stones are white in color there are cases in which these stones turn green in color. Yes, to be straight. Your tonsil stones have turned to green due to one of the following reasons.
3 Causes your Tonsil stones may look like a green spot:
You are eating Green:
The color of tonsil stones may be affected by the type of food you are eating or the liquids you are drinking. Sometimes the green foods we eat slowly stain your tonsils and the stones present on them. Thus the white tonsil stones within few days turn into a green tonsil stone which may look peculiar green in color. See “I am getting these stones again and again” What should I do?
What to do now?
You need not worry much. This is almost like any other normal tonsil stone. So you can follow anyone of the methods to get rid of the tonsil stones.
You can see my previous articles and get my book “Tonsil stones eliminator” on how to remove these tonsil stones.
Thu Mucus is playing the key role:
Are you suffering a cold? Do you have a serious sinus infection?
If your answer is YES, then this could be the core reason behind your green tonsil stone. The mucus which is formed is generally green in color. This mucus produced in the throat generally settles on the tonsils. Thus this can make the tonsil stones present on the tonsils look green in color. See I am coughing up tonsil stones and mucus daily. What to do?
What to do now?
In general people having colds for many days, their tonsil stones are caused by their post nasal drip. The mucus that is produced by the cold slowly drips down into the throat and settles on the tonsils, The bacteria starts combining with this mucus and results in the formation of a tonsil stone.
This is much more common in people suffering with sinus infections. In such a case until you stop the mucus production and post nasal drip, the tonsil stones come again and again. You can see this article “Are your Tonsil stones because of Post nasal drip? Do this Now..” to eliminate post nasal drip and tonsil stones.
Deep Infection and Pus:
This is another most common cause why your tonsil stones may be looking green. A tonsil stones is nothing but an accumulation of food particles combined with bacteria.
Sometimes, the bacteria present on the tonsil stone start affecting the tonsil tissue present. Thus the infection slowly deepens. This will result in the formation of pus which is green in color.
Thus in this case, your tonsil stones are generally covered by the pus that is formed. This result in tonsil stone looking green which you may feel is a green tonsil stone. See Where can I get a step by step clear guidance that helps eliminate my tonsil stones?
What to do now?
Your green tonsil stone indicates the deep infection and the damage it is causing. The pus is nothing but your WBC that got killed by the bacteria present. So you need to first heal the infection and then remove the tonsil stones.
Removal of stones in such a scenario may result in severe pain and bleeding. Ignoring the infection might also damage your tonsil gland completely. So it is better to take action fast. See An almost instant way to stop tonsil stones and its bad breath
