muddy dog licking nose and getting water up nose
« on: May 19, 2014, 09:38:36 PM »
Hi everyone, I have a huge fear of naelgeria fowleri. 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!

Very rare that you catch this in that way. I think I posted the stats for this disease once in the HA section of the forum. In the US alone there is less than 3 cases a year. Think how many people live in the US? You would have to be 1 of the 2 people for this year. Out of millions. And those who do catch it get it in other ways. So rest that mind of yours. This is something you won't be catching any time soon.
