Default Hedgehog scratch with poop in nails

Hi all, this might be a dumb question but i’m a bit concerned. Today i was giving my hedgie her antibiotics and she was squirming a lot, giving my hands lots of little scratches. What concerns me is that she had poop in her claws. Am i going to get an infection from this? or sick?

Just make sure you throughly wash/scrub your hands with a good soap (an antibacteria one if you have one) and hot water afterwards, I think it will be fine

If the scratches are deep and look sore or itchy afterwards, you could just use some antiseptic cream or detol solution etc, after you've handled your hog for the night, so before going to bed.
