I have noticed that on the side of my throat there are little pockets and white matter lodges in them. Sometimes they break free and I swallow them accidentally. What is this white matter and will it hurt me. It smells terrible too.
Hi, this could be granular pharyngitis which is a bacterial infection of the throat commonly caused by streptococcus. the white matter is the granular substance formed during the infection and it is not harmful if swallowed.
