ENT Specialist Dr. Naveen Kumar's  Response

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
The white substance which comes out of the throat is called tonsillolith. This is collection of the food material in the crypts of the tonsil. You need to drink plenty of warm water to reduce the recurrent infection, also do mouth gargles with warm water after taking food, that would be more than sufficient. If there is more than 3-4 attacks of fever with sore throat in a year, better to consult ENT specialist and get the tonsils removed.
