What happens if you go to a public restroom, sit down, and realize someone sprinkled on the seat? It’s gross… But is it dangerous? Microbiologist Dr. Phillip Tierno says, no. You won’t pick up an illness or infection UNLESS you have an open wound on your rear end, or you touch the damp seat, then touch your eyes, nose or mouth. Because, although urine does contain bacteria, it’s generally not harmful. Just remember to wash your hands after using the restroom.
