White stones in throat(tonsilloliths)

Hi there
I read your page on tonsilitis and finally figured out what these were as I had them for probably a year now. Every few weeks I feel something stuck in my throat and eventually they come out. Will antibiotics cure this or what is needed? Thank you

Dear J
All you really can do is gargle with salt water, as this is not due to acute infection. You can also see an ENT surgeon and ask them to remove this physically or do laster resurfacing of the tonsils.
