In brief: See your doc

See your doctor for an exam. Only use distilled water or tap water that has been boiled and allowed to cool for sinus irrigations.
Well water may contain amoeba in addition to other pathogens that may be harmful to your nose and sinuses. The amoeba naegleria fowleri has been known to cause a very serious brain infection.
