please dont do this, it will result into bronchitis. this happens when mucus is swallowed and stored in your lungs.
sorry its better to spit every bit of mucus because that holds the infection as well.

Although, I agree that swallowing your mucous is not a good idea, it's not likely to cause bronchitis. Mucous is by no means stored in the lungs after swallowing. You transport the substance to your gastrointestinal tract via the esophagus when you swallow. Mucous would have to find it's way through the trachea to reach the lungs, and that is unlikely to happen by simply swallowing. The virus/bacteria in the mucous would be more likely to cause some sort of gastrointestinal problem.

mucus will not cause bronchitis, nor is it possible to end up with it in ur lungs by swallowing it. however swallowing enough mucus can give u a stomach ache, commonly refered to at 'snot belly'.

Do not swallow your mucus. A sore throat is usually due to mucus constantly running down it, making it irritated and sore. Swallowing your mucus will only make it worse.

Ew. No. Sinus drainage can cause a sore throat, so swallowing mucous will eventually make it worse. Stick with gargling warm salt water.
