My dog might have eaten some bird poop last week and today he licked my face and ears. Can I get a brain parasite or sick from this?

My dog might have eaten some bird poop last week and today he licked my face and ears. Can I get a brain parasite or sick from this?

No risk, no worries: In the US in the past 50 years, important medical consequences from dogs are very rare, esp. Assuming the dog is properly vaccinated. The main risk is wound infection if bitten. Parasitic infections from dogs are very rare and ingesting bird droppings doesn't raise the risk. Anyway, for every time you know this happened, it probably occurred 10 other times as well. Nothing to worry about! ...Read more

Hi I'm in saudi arabia and I had bird feces on my clothes which I rubbed a little on my eye. Now it hurts a little I washed it out it still hurts mild?

Get it checked: If the pain persists and eye is red, you should consult a local doctor or an ophthalmologist, as it may be due to irritation due to rubbing, or allergic reaction and there is a chance of infection as well
you did the right think by washing it out. ...Read more

I may have popped a blood vessel in my eye while pooping?

I may have popped a blood vessel in my eye while pooping?

Hemorrhage in eye: Sometimes a vessel in the conjunctival lining of the eye over the white sclera, will seep a drop of blood which spreads over a broad area, looking very red. Common stresses that do this are straining at the toilet, coughing, sneezing and various athletic maneuvers. If the vision is unaffected and there is no pain, you can usually wait this out. But see an ophthalmologist if you have worries. ...Read more

Ok so I was cleaning out my ducks cage and some duck poop got on the out side of my eye but I washed my eye with warm water so will it make me sick?

Ok so I was cleaning out my ducks cage and some duck poop got on the out side of my eye but I washed my eye with warm water so will it make me sick?

Probably not: Good that you irrigated it out and time will ultimately tell. However, the type of bacteria in a duck's gut is probably quite dissimilar from ours and so it is unlikely that conditions in your eye would support growth of these bacteria. Nevertheless, it is possible, so if redness, discharge or irritation develop, be sure to check in with your eye care professional. ...Read more

Can I catch something from my hair touching smeared poop on the bathroom wall and then the hair going in my eye & mouth?

Can I catch something from my hair touching smeared poop on the bathroom wall and then the hair going in my eye & mouth?

Very unlikely: Obviously the poop would have to have contained something infectious that was resistant to drying. Ordinary poop will cause no problem. Your ordinary resistance will probably ward off anything that would be a problem. Simply wait it out and seek a doctor's attention only if you develop symptoms like a fever or vomiting, etc. ...Read more

There's this girl always rubbing in her eye color to my face I want eyes that are grey not brown she calls them poop colored any idea how to change eye?

Don't be bullied: Please don't ever feel like you have to change yourself because of someone bullying you. Many people think brown eyes are great or even the best color. Often people insult others because of their own insecurity

if you do decide you want a different eye color, i'd suggest seeing an optometrist or ophthalmologist to see if your eyes will handle contacts--different brands of colored contacts exist. ...Read more

Why did my 3 1/2 mo old breast fed babies poop smell different (almost a medicinal smell!) when on erythromycin eye ointment for eye infection?

Hard to say: This could be a situation where antibiotic somehow got on the baby's hand and made its way into the GI tract, OR, possibly something you are eating in your diet could be affecting the poop. The only thing that will prove what caused this is whether the funny poop smell is gone after the eye treatment is stopped for a week or so... ...Read more
