Re: Safe to Swallow Phlegm?
Wow, I wouldn't on a constant basis. Horking in public, not a nice thing to do, but in private, I'd spit it into a kleenex and toss it.
If you spit it out, it's better than keeping it in the system. Your body will be producing more than you'll be wanting to swallow I would think.
If it's still yellow-green, it's still a lot of infection....best to spit out as much as possible. Have you tried the product Musinex? Maybe that will help loosen the secretions and get it out better.
Hope you improve soon!
It's all a matter of perspective!
