Please help-coughing
for the past 2 weeks i had a problem with my tongue and tonsils(tongue got numb and sore)in the morning and at night and the doctor said it a sinus drop. That has stopped after taking some sinus pills that he gave me. Now i have a dry cough and when i cough white-smelly small balls come out. What cause them and how can i stop them? Pls help

Dear Flo-quuen
This is probably due to infection in the tonsil cripts - gargle with antiseptic and ask him to give you a course of broadspectrum antibiotics?
