I've never heard of hedgehpgs catching illnesses that humans have. When I have had a cold or flu me and my boy still cuddle lots but he never got sick from me. Maybe someone more experienced will come along and give you some more advice.

Good luck!

Thanks! I have been washing my hands frequently! My hedgehog is not a classroom hedgie so as long as I keep up with good cleanliness she should be ok I am sure!

I feel your pain! I'm a swim instructor and gymnastics coach so I am definitely used to being surrounded by germs, sickness and contagion! I'm currently battling some sort of flu/head and chest cold. Feel better soon!

Animals can get pink eye, but not from us. The virus that causes it for us is human-specific. I looked into this when my dog had pink eye a few years ago. :]
