I was cleaning a roof which had raccoon feces - the gutter got clogged and when I went to unclog the gutter all the water and poop exploded all over me - unfortunately in my mouth too. Now what? Am I at risk for rabies or roundworms? Do I need to see a doctor?
Hello Rabies viruses are killed by hydrochloric acid present in stomach and there is no chance of getting rabies with this method, so need not to worry and need not to consult any doctor for this purposes. As far as about round worm infestation , you may get with oral rout so just for precaution take a combination of albendazole 400 mg + ivermectine 12 mg one tablet / day for 2 consecutive day . This is a precautionary measure for worm infestation . For rabies nothing to do. Hope this will help you.
