Hi nenelover12

Thank you for your post.

You will need to have medical evaluation to know exactly what this black mucus is.

If you smoke - stop. If you are around fires or have an open fire place commonly used at home, consider putting in a glass door.

Depending on what you do for a living, you may need to wear a mask.

Or you may have some kind of fungal infection.

Hi nenelover17

I said "if" you smoke, as this can cause black discharge.

You need to see a doctor for an evaluation.
