comment Can Naegleria fowleri enter through your ear?
@KyleCares - Naegleria fowleri eat myelin and neurons. The closest nerve bundle in the ears is in the Inner Ear (Vestibular Nerve) behind the Oval Window, Semicircular Ducts, and wedged between the Ducts and the Cochlea. Even if the Eardrum is compromised, it would still be almost impossible.
