User :   Hi, I have a hole in my tonsil a little smaller than the size of a dime, there's a little puss in it and it was bleeding yesterday. I was told it was an abscess that formed after eating something that may have torn a hole in my tonsil, but I don't recall eating anything that could have done so.
User :   I've often come down with tonsillitis, i'd say about once or twice a year. Sometimes i cough up hard, pea-sized, off-white things that smell awful. any ideas?
