The Color of Your Snot

What does the color of your snot mean?  Actually, very little.  There's a common misconception that the color of your snot can tell you if you have a viral or bacterial infection.  Unfortunately this is not true.  Your snot can give you a variety of colors for a variety of different reasons.  For more information, check out WedMd's explanation of colored snot.

Oh, and also, the more scientific name for snot is mucus.  :-)  I really wanted to post a picture of different colored mucus, but I refrained myself from doing so.  LOL!
