Why is My Snot Jelly Like?

Everyone knows what snot is—the sticky, jelly-like substance that lines your eyes, sinuses, nose, mouth and lungs. And while it might not be pleasant to look at, snot serves an important purpose, keeping viruses, bacteria, dust and other debris from entering your body. But did you know that the color of your snot can also tell you a lot about your health?

For example, if your snot is yellow or green, it's an indicator that your immune system is kicking into high gear. This is because white blood cells are rushing to kill off germs, which then get discarded in your snot as waste. This is usually accompanied by other symptoms such as a sore throat, congestion and cough.

If your snot is clear, it means that your body is producing just the right amount of mucus to keep you healthy. This type of snot can also be a sign of allergies because your body is trying to expel dust, pollen and other irritants.

However, if your snot is dark brown or black, it's not a good sign. This is often caused by smoking or illicit drug use, but it can also be a sign of a fungal infection. If you're experiencing this, it's best to see a doctor right away.
