ELi5 how our bodies produce mucus.



Wondering how there are never ending boogers when one has a sinus infection.

In: Biology

Water and other stuff (I think white blood cells) gets pulled from your body and made into snot: mucus discharge and yellow/green/brown puss. The dirt/dust in your nose also contributes. Runny nose and fever (if you have one) are why you need water (and nutrients) when you have a sinus infection.


Why would you not simply type the same question into a search engine? You don’t need to wait for replies, question if source if using readily available, credited resources, and you can actually learn and search further into that bodily function question you have.

You can learn so much with the amazing resources on the internet, for free. That should be absurd
