Please anyone who has any credible source for an answer on this topic -- I've had flu/cold severe cold now for about 3 weeks, most of the symptoms have cleared up with the exception of this horrific cough which thoroughly disgusts my husband.

He claims when I cough up this yellow/green disgusting mucusey phlegm that it's safe to swallow it. He says the acid in my stomach will kill it. Logically, I'd think it'd be less likely to promote my illness if I coughed it up and spit it out.


Is it safe to swallow the phlegm or smarter to spit it out?
