Afraid of rabies, previously vaccinated. Walking outside on bright, sunny day (no rain). Single drop of liquid fell from tree and lands directly in eye/tear-duct. Couldn't identify source of liquid. Possible bat saliva exposure or being paranoid?

Afraid of rabies, previously vaccinated. Walking outside on bright, sunny day (no rain). Single drop of liquid fell from tree and lands directly in eye/tear-duct. Couldn't identify source of liquid. Possible bat saliva exposure or being paranoid?

Paranoid: The most likely liquid falling from a tree would be water. Did it rain recently? The odds of a bat salivating in a tree on a sunny day is very very rare. Bats like dark places to rest during the day. Also, bats drooling? Also very rare. The saliva from a bat causing rabies comes from a bite, not drool. Also very rare to get rabies through the membranes of the eyes. So, please don't worry. ...Read more

Friend's top part of bedroom window open 1/2 inch all nite. horizontal blinds were down. No screen. Afraid a bat flew in? Rabies? No sign of bats.

Friend's top part of bedroom window open 1/2 inch all nite. horizontal blinds were down. No screen. Afraid a bat flew in? Rabies? No sign of bats.

? stop freaking out: You would know if bat bit you, even at night. The blinds were in place, so the boat's radar would not perceive that window as open. A bat didn't bother you last night and you don't need rabies shots. I'd be more worried about the mosquitoes that came in and what they are carrying. ...Read more

i touched the newspaper present near my gate.Some random cat was also present there.i didnt touched the cat but newspaper.any chance of rabies?

i touched the newspaper present near my gate.Some random cat was also present there.i didnt touched the cat but newspaper.any chance of rabies?

Zero chance: In real life, there is zero chance of catching rabies that way... mathematically rounding to zero, of course. Realize that unless a person is watching the newspaper at the gate all the time, without turning away, he cannot know what animal(s) have touched that newspaper. If it's a daily paper, that means staring at the paper at the gate seven days a week. Not a good thing to do. ...Read more
