Welcome to e health forum.

When a person accidentally consumes microbe-contaminated items, such as saliva - infections that can be transmitted include - common cold viruses, Hepatitis-B, Infectious mononucleosis (EBV), CMC and infections due to streptococcus (can cause oral and throat infections).

The likelyhood that you will have a infection would be very less likely.

But if you are concerned then it would be recommended that you consult your doctor and seek proper tests.

I hope this helps.
