Headache after clean out rotten refrigerator
I was away for 2.5 months. Rotten food liquids from the refrigerator on the floor. I cleaned out the mess (with small flies) yesterday with diluted bleach and baking soda. I did not wear a mask and have a slight headache this morning. Am I sick?

Hi there
If you didn't ingest anything from the rotten refrigerator, then I doubt if you are sick - except if you are coming down with an unrelated illness. Good luck and I hope that you feel better soon!
