How can I put it ... BOGIES! The mucus in the nasal cavity is rich in antibodies and other immune factors, and the cells lining the cavity also have tiny, hair-like protrusions known as cilia, which gradually waft the mucous layer away from the interior. The mucus dries, and falls away from the nose in particles of all sizes from the microscopic to the rather large lumps of dried snot that can be so pleasant to watch small children retrieve and use as dietary supplements.
