Phlegm Cough Shaped Like Sand?
, I just took out a sandy form from my mouth / throat and smelled unpleasant. Is that? Is that normal? Thanks.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Complaints that you experience actually need to be clarified again whether it is vomiting, or stuck in the mouth cavity, or coughed. Then it should also be clarified what color, whether soft or hard, how many, how many times it has happened and various other information. This is important because it is not natural for sand to come out of the mouth. And the results of the processing of substances in the body also does not look like sand and issued or around the oral cavity.
Our guess so far is that it might be leftover food or gravel in your rice or food some time ago, but it is not swallowed and not brushed when you brush your teeth. It could also be a patch of loose teeth or pieces of the tooth itself. So that at one time maybe because of rubbing the tongue or other food, pushed by water or because of the chewing process, the object is detached from its previous place and only felt by you.
But these allegations can be wrong, which is to be more certain, especially if this condition is recurrent or very disturbing, you should consult your general practitioner first to avoid misunderstandings and determine the most appropriate treatment. Meanwhile, brush your teeth twice a day, use dental floss and mouthwash. So, hopefully answering your question.
