No worries: Significant injury is highly unlikely from an event such as this. Best wishes.

Not really: Worse case scenario, your kid had to swallow some of his nasal drainage, which they usually do anyway. I'd chill and get some rest. There are going to be many more occasions where you learn something the hard way.
