I just sneezed and it got into my eye...
« on: July 08, 2014, 11:10:49 PM »
So I sneezed and fans were going full force today so it blew back and hit my eye... kinda worried, any chance I'll catch an infection or something from this?! Can you give yourself an infection? Need clarification and reassurance...

I always feel uneasy about possible bacterial infections and what not...  :(

The worst that can happen is conjuctivitis, it is uncomfortable, but otherwise nothing...

Well, it could get infected, but no major infection, just some annoying but harmless one...

I'm no doc but I think there's a duct between the eye and the nose/throat. If that's the case they share germs and infections anyway. I really wouldn't worry about something like this!
