Yes this question is for real

Every time I sneeze or blow my nose my boogers have black in them. I do not smoke, no one I know smokes or anything. What else would cause this??

It's been happening the last month or so, never happened before that.. Thanks

  • Do you work in a factory? Or are you around a lot of colored dust? When my husband worked at a jeans factory, he always had blue boogers. And when I worked at a mechanical factory (lots of carbon dust) I had a lot of black boogers. Could be something like that...?

  • But the thing is, I dont live anywhere or work any where with dust. I live in a fairly new home and a brand new daycare... I am RARELY outside. Live in Florida its way too hot to be outside, and its not old blood. It looks like dirt, just have no idea what from????

  • This happens whenever I'm outside working on my yard ... and happens at work too (teacher). I use dry erase markers and their dust can get up there.
