muddy dog licking nose and getting water up nose
« on: May 19, 2014, 09:37:03 PM »
Hi everyone, today while helping a friend pick up their dog, I had a muddy disgusting dog that my was also at the place where my friend bought the dog jump up and lick my nose. Also, when i was giving my friends dog a bath, she shook, and water went up into my nose. I'm wondering can I catch naegleria fowleri from either of these 2 events? Please respond, I'm freaking out!

Almost zero chance of that happening. I've been freaking out over this all day, pretty sure there hasn't been a single reported case of this all year... I doubt we're both the "first" cases of the year.... :P

So you're saying it's basically impossible to catch it that way?

It's highly unlikely in general, especially if you live in colder climates. There's only been 120ish cases over the past 50 years, a vast majority of which happen to little kids who go swimming in freshwater ponds or lakes.
