Brief Answer:
White particle is due to infected material.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for the query.
As per your clinical history it appears as you are having follicular tonsillitis.
White particle is due to infected material inside holes in tonsil.
If I were your treating doctor, I would advice you chlorhexidine mouthwash thrice daily.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
Thanks.

Will using the mouthwash take out the particle? Because it has been more than 4 days since the particle is stuck and its causing disco,fort and foul breath
