Hi, yesterday, I was cleaning my lavatory bowl with a small brush, and a tiny droplet of water flicked up as i was doing it and landed on my top lip. I immediately washed it off and dried it. I was wondering if I could nonetheless have come into contact with bacteria. the reason I ask is I never use detergent and only clean with crush and sometimes soap, due to intolerance of bleach and other detergents. Thank you.
You are fine . You immediately washed off your lip and there was no ingestion. You didn’t get infected
