    I was checking the incubator today and pulled an egg tray out and BOOM a egg exploded in my face.... some of the rot got into my eye. I was wondering if this could harm me or make me sick? Just what is the composition of a rotten egg? I know that they can have bacteria in em but can it make me sick? [​IMG]

    I would flush your eye with warm water repeatedly. Call your doc and see if you should watch for anything. Your doc should have an on call doc for the weekend.

    There is nothing more vile than an egg exploding on you. I've had it happen more than once now. It is the sickest smell on earth and I truly sympathize. :\\

    i know the smell is hard to wash off. i'm not sure what to recommend. many eye washes have salts or other bacteria inhibitors. it's not recomended but i have put a bottle of contact storage solution over my eye for rinse.
