Hello,

It is possible that sepsis could because by the events you described but very unlikely.

A few more questions for you....

After the person spit into your eyes and scratched you, did you have signs of infection around your eyes and the other skin that was scratched?

For example, was the white part of your eyes red or was the skin that was scratched red and swollen?

Do you have any other medical problems or problems with your immune system (such as diabetes, organ transplant, use of steroids, etc)?
