Don't worry about it. If it goes up your nose, just take a clean tissue and blow it out. Many people have stuffed far more dangerous things up
their noses than cardboard crud and have lived to talk about it. Consider that already you may have a virus in your body that is doing its rounds,
and you are still around. This is why the nose has boogers, to protect dangerous things from getting too deep in your lungs.
Consider that despite the power of the booger, people still inhale all sorts of toxic chemicals through their noses. Drugs. Nasal spray. Saline.
Bath salts. Baby powder. Powdered sugar. Now they may lose their septum in the process, but they are still (mostly) alive.
Consider the corn in the fields, sprayed with roundup. Or the metal particles sprayed into the air to mess with enemy radar. Or the gasoline fumes
you catch every time you have to refuel. Or the BPA in your plastic. Or the hormones in meat products. This too shall pass.
What you are describing, these little grainy pellets from a moisture-wicking packet, it could be. So don't eat them, just as most packages
recommend. Notice how those things can go with food, but are not for ingestion.
Make sure you aren't in a dorm environment. If you are, read below...
Off the record, it's totally laced! You should go crime scene on it, get a baggie and tweezers, seal and date it with your name, give proper
evidence handling, and then take a sample and put it under a few microscopes, including an electron microscope. That is the only way to be sure.
Search the tissue box for other signs of tampering, like loose glue flaps, forged barcodes, and be sure to dust it for prints and spray it with a
chemical then check it with a black light for unseen contaminants. (just kidding)
