Water went up the nose
I was using borewell water to brush my teeth but while gargling and swishing the mouth after brushing water went up my nose through my mouth. That is it got up from my mouth and came out through my nose. I don't know how it happened. My nose was hurting a bit. I blew the water out from my nose. Is this a risk situation for N Fowleri infection? Or it has to go through the nose upwards to cause an infection? Please guide me as I am very anxious.
