Ate you still alive? If so, no need to worry. If not, you should have washed your hands afterwards and not touched your eyes like you did [emoji6]

On a serious note, the issues with zoas are overstated somewhat, a good hand scrub after handling and all is well. Take care not to go near any of your 'mucous membranes' before you wash your hands.

Palys on the other hand, almost certain death...
