Different colors of pus?
I apologize in advance for how gross this question is.

I have noticed that sometimes pus is yellow and sometimes it is green. Is there any significance in the color?


I think green is worse, but either way, if there is pus there is infection.

Dr. Kunz
Its not gross, its just a part of being a living organism. It could be the different kinds of acne. Usually whiteheads pus is white. Blackheads a greenish dark color. Cysts are usually brownish or redish with white. Its the different levels of acne that is the reason of different color.

I am no doctor but from my understanding a type mucus or pus is determine by its color . I know like with mucus if it is clear than is usually a sign of a virus and if its thick and yellow it bacterial infection. so basically the color is determine by what is causing the infection. Check web md!

Although both indicate infection, white pus means there are living white blood cells in it fighting infection. Green means that there are more white blood cells fighting an even bigger infection and yellow means that the white blood cells have died fighting for you and/or are dying and losing to the infection. SO... yellow is worse than green because it means the infection is winning. White pus is usually your body's first response to invasion.

Philip V
no there isnt its just that puss i infection (dead blood cells) and sometimes there is more water in it that others causing it to be a slightly different color :)
