Ahh! I've got the worst habit- I bite my nails. I swallowed a bit on accident <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> and now it's stuck in my tonsil.<br><br>
I have horirbly pitted tonsils and get tonsil stones frequently- and I have to dig them out, sorry, tmi... but I cannot for the life of me get this little bit of nail out!!<br><br>
Anyone know if I can gargle with something? What would you recommend?<br><br>
This is horribly embarassing! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I get tonsiliths a lot too. I have no advice - sorry! Perhaps getting some of those super long handled q-tips like they have at hospitals to try to dislodge it? Or a gargle marathon? I actually wanted to get my tonsils removed to stop tonsiliths. (But I didn't.)

I wish I could get my tonsils removed! Big yellow hunks of gunk in my tonsils are not fun! I'm only 19, so that's most certainly not going to be in my future.<br><br>
It probably got disloged in my sleep because I woke up and it was gone. But.. yuck!
