Sometimes: The throat is a vague area to describe for most people. It is that place or those places from the back of the nose all the way down the throat until the vocal cords. That means all the way down to the upper part of the larynx. If a person has a croupy cough or has laryngitis, such as if he lost his voice due to the viral illness, he probably has mucus from the larynx area too.
