What is anthrax ?

My mother says that she experienced a burning sensation in her nose and a funny taste in her mouth. She was holding a telephone and a letter next to her face . They only lasted for a moment. I know it s a little sensational, but I can t help but consider anthrax . What do you think?

There are hardly chance of getting Anthrax like you feel your mother has for the very reason that it was a ploy used by terrorist and your mother does not have a valid reason to get a letter from terrorists.As for the funny test and burning in nose it may be due to some other reason for which she should consult a doctor and if there is any problem she should get treated.
