Hello My 9 Nine year old daughter keeps getting white bread

Resolved Question:

Hello
My 9 Nine year old daughter keeps getting white bread like small balls growing on and in the cavities of her throat tonsils, she can remove them with using cotton buds or by using her tong and throat muscle
When extracted they are very smelly caused by bacteria no doubt but they keep appearing its very strange. Is this common ?
Warm regards

Hello
This is quite common.
Tonsiliths they are called.
She should of course see the doctor about these, but it is unlikely to present a problem.
She should have a culture of the tonsils to make sure she is not a strep carrier.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
