  • I'm not sure - I've never sniffed boogers - green or any other color.

  • If I have a sinus infection I can definitely smell the infection every time I breathe through my nose, and they are green. With other colds, they might be kind of greenish, but I don't smell infection.

  • I have also been able to smell infection anytime I have had a sinus infection. I usually can smell it after I blow my nose and then sniff. I have always just assumed I was weird but I guess not if other people are able to smell this also.
