Smokers...

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I had a saw throat yesterday, had a look in the mirror and opened my mouth. I noticed a white dot, almost like a zit that you'd get on the face on one of my palatine tonsils and a dot on the back of it. Got me a bit worried as to what it was so I rang the NHS and they told me to give it a few days to dissipate an if it didn't get in contact with them again.

Any smokers had a similar problem? I'm not a heavy smoker and only started smoking a few months ago. Cancer or just a bacterial infection?

    a white spot is most likley a bacterial infection. smoking can make it worse.

    sounds like tonsilitis to be honest. I would quit though if you are worrying so much its probably for the best.

    Yeah, the dot is on its way out now. Got some of that anti-bacterial mouthwash, seems to have sorted it out.
