Yesterday I cleaned my garage and swept up tons of mouse droppings. My throat became irritated like I have inhaled something bad and today it's same?

Mouse droppings: While this is likely allergy from dust and possibly mouse dander, there are some diseases that are rare that can be transmitted by rodent droppings (hantavirus, leptosirosis, lymphocytic chorionic meningitis, and others).
