My snot is a dark yellow; like when throwing up bile. Good this be because of a sinus infection I have been fighting (even though it's been two weeks)?

Inflammatory cells are busy fighting bacteria (and sometimes viruses) and the 'dead soldiers' will be left behind as a pus-like material -- hence 'yellow snot'. Good to try and keep this stuff coming out. Hydrating well will help your body get rid of this stuff. ...Read more
