sink water went up my nose and it hurt/burned really bad. is that dangerous ? (bacteria to brain?)?

I have heard of Naegleria fowleri from water going up your nose. I was washing my face and sink water went up my nose and it burned and hurt really bad. I blew out my nose but im scared now if this is dangerous

    Nothing to worry about your water is treated for such issues the hurt and burn was from the clorine in the city water you have.

    I think you'll be fine. Public water gets extensively treated to make it safe.

    Depends on your location. I would recommend you try to not be a hypochondriac. I wouldn’t worry unless you’re in a dangerous third world country where that can happen
