Your tonsils are two little lymph nodes that are found on either side of the back of your throat. Considering that the tonsils are there solely to keep your body from getting infected, it is rather ironic that they themselves can get infected, which is what tonsillitis is. Luckily, there are many simple home remedies for tonsillitis.
Tonsil stones are little lumps that are calcified material that forms from debris in your mouth from your daily activities. They appear on the fleshy part of your tonsil and mouth. Those who have tonsil stones suffer from bad breath and severe pain while swallowing food and drink. They often have a sore throat often as well.
