Me and my Dragon were playing, he jumped on my face and cut my lip, my lip is now bleeding, I cleaned it with salt water, and I also bathed my dragon this morning for 10 minutes.
I am freaking out he has given me salmonella as he made me bleed a little on my lip.
Please help with genuine advice

It's highly unlikely he gave you salmonella. Although the possibility is there, it's there just from handling them. I've been bit, whipped, and scratched to the point of bleeding many many times in the years and years of owing reptiles and going out herping. You are still more likely to get salmonella going out to eat then from you dragon at least that's my experience. Never met a soul who's got salmonella from their reptiles but know a few who got it from food.

Thank you for your response, he literally cut my lip with his nail. So I’m scared it had salmonella in, and now it’s inside my lip

About 70,000 people a year get salmonella from reptiles, compare that to the 142,000 cases a year from chicken eggs alone. Salmonella is the most common type of food poison in the world. Again, don't worry about it your chances are very very low.

My beardies literally sleep on my face, like Lobretto i have been bit, scratched, clawed, and cut open. I gave never been sick from it. I think you have a better chance of getting struck by lightning. (I actually have had that happen to me also lol, not a direct hit but enough to knock me out) You should be just fine.

So freaking handsome I just love youuuuu so much 💕
There is something wrong with my beardies left eye!! I included a picture where it shows what her right eye looks like then the others are what her left eye is. She always has it closed (as much as she can) and she finally opened it for a bit when i misted her. I don’t know what i could be doing wrong and it’s not from sand because she doesn’t have it in her cage.
