Soap.: Don 't worry about this small amount.It will not hurt you if you swallowed it. There may be a littleshortloved irritation but that is it.

Worried: No need to worry, not a large exposure. I would recommend not using an antibacterial soap as they kill the good organisms on your skin as well as any bad ones. Plain soap and water is best.
