I think that is the dumbest idea ever. Thats not really accomplishing anything, anyone 18+ can still buy it, all they have to do is ask now. I could see if they ran a criminal backround check (which ...
Short of taking Claritin or Allegra D what can i do?...
Sometimes when I cough hard a white thick chunky like substance comes up that is smelly and waxy? What is it?
It does not happen very often like maybe once or twice a year. Today I coughed and two chunks of it came up. I know that this is sort of a grose question but have never heard of this and am very curious. Is it something to worry about? Is cholesterol in our lungs? Is this a substance that occurs in our lungs? Additional Details Yes, I have asthma.
you might of had just digested some lard that didn't go down right
Are they little? If they are big, idk, but if they are little, like smaller than a pea, and you still have your tonsils, then that is where they are coming from. I had these and asked my doctor, its from having some sort of fever or infection that the body is fighting off, and yes its gross, but they are pus. But thats only if you still have your tonsils. If you dont, i have no clue.
they are old mucis plugs
don't panic....lol. my sister gets these sometimes too. They are actually old mucus plugs from resp infections and such. Are you an asthmatic? my sister is , so she's prone to resp infections a few times a year. She sometimes coughs and these nasty, smelly balls of old mucus come up. She actually made up this goofy name for them because she didn't know what they were either at first. I hope this helps to calm your nerves and take care of yourself.

You're coughing up tonsilliths, also called tonsil stones. They are little clumps of mucus, food and bacteria that build up in your tonsils, normally they aren't noticed but sometimes they stick and end up as stinky horrid pearls of goop that you hack up. If you don't have tonsils you won't get these little chunks of grossness.
Nothing to really worry about, unless they are big and become painful. I've had them for years, my allergist said people with allergies are more likely to get them. They do cause bad breath and can give you a sore throat.
Sometimes you can feel them in your tonsils, like a little lump or annoyance at the back of your throat. Look in a mirror and you might see them as whitish or yellowish objects sticking out of the tonsil crypts. If you can't hack them out you can sometimes poke them loose with a q-tip :]
