Thanks a lot for your input. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concerns but later you can ask anything you want. If you culture was negative and if you don't have any symptoms, then these white spots are stones in the tonsils. The stones are formed because of collection of debris in the crypts of the tonsil. Start using any over the counter available mouthwash, help you in next one week you can continue that otherwise you should see an ENT specialist and should get your tonsils removed. I reassure you with hundred percent confidence being an ENT specialist myself that there is nothing serious related to your problem. I wish you good luck and that you get well soon. My goal is to provide you with excellent service but if you received anything less than that, please ask anything you want. Your excellent feedback is requested and will be appreciated. Regards
