Hello. My daughter is on antibiotics for a chest infection which was a result of a virus she obtained last week. She doing much better but still a bit congested and has a wet cough. However this morning, she blew this out of her nose. It is a sold material but it looks like it has “sucker tentacles” and has some dark almost black snot in the middle of the green material. It’s about 8mm in size but I’m concerned Incase this is worrying or some lung material? Have you seen this before? Thank you

Welcome to JustAnswer.
Answers here are for education and information.
I will respond shortly with an answer or further information request.

It is hardened infected snot that originated in the nose and sinuses.

It has not come from the lung.

This is not worrisome.

Antibiotics will resolve it.

I wish her symptoms resolve soon.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need any more information.
