To swallow mucus

Q: While suffering from a cold, some mucus gathered in my mouth and I swallowed it instead of spitting it out. Was my fast valid?

A: Swallowing the mucus (from head /lung) does not make one liable to anything. However, after the mucus enters the mouth, one should — by obligatory caution — avoid swallowing it.
