Tonsils & Thrush...
Jan 9, 2002

Dear Dr. Feinberg,

I never really looked at my tonsils until the last couple of weeks. Consequently, I never realized that my tonsils had crypts.

Today I squeezed one of my tonsils and out came a lot of green foul smelling cheese like stuff. This stuff really smelled bad!

My question is: is this stuff in any way associated with thrush? Or is it normal?

Response from Dr. Feinberg

This is not thrush, nor is it normal. You have tonsillitis, and need antibiotics to clear it up. See your physician.
