    Default Exposed to Wild bird poop

    Hi everyone,
    I've been trying to search for information about wild birds and pregnancy.. Not much information on birds... only found that toxoplasmosis are more common in cats.

    I've gotten bird poop on my scalp for a few hours till one of my friend who's taller than me saw it. I did touch the poop as I thought he was just joking with me. Didn't manage to wash my hands and hair after an hr or so... =(
    I'm more disgusted by having that on my scalp/hair, But any ideas if exposure to bird poop causes any harm?

    Thanks!

    You should be fine. Just wash it off and don't eat any of it. Birds don't carry toxo.
