Thick, white phlegm that is the result of a cough usually means that there is an infection going on in your body. Phlegm represents pus, which confirms the infection. Most of the time, when it is white phlegm, it is a minor illness or the beginning of bronchitis. There are different colors of phlegm and each represents a different illness. The thing that you want to do is cough the phlegm up and spit it out. Putting it back in your body keeps the infection in your body.
