Hello Nambidj,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic. Humans coming in contact with faecal matter or urine, specially of animals is often encountered with. In case such an exposure is suspected, it is advisable to splash clear running water in the eyes and thoroughly clean. Well the diseases which one may contact from this kind of exposure are toxoplasmosis-a disease commonly contacted from cats,specially humans with a weak immunity.Then there is leptospirosis, from rodents.This too presents with flu like symptoms. I would suggest you to visit nearby physician, tell him the history, and after examining he might be in a better position to guide you.Hope I could answer your query.Take care.
