I came in contact with armadillo blood My dog bit off a armadillos tail and after pulling my dog off the armadillo blood got on my bare skin. How concerned should I be about contracting leprosy?

@quickquestion Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. It sounds like your dog is pretty protective of you!
The research I could find, is that it is unlikely you have a problem, per the Center for Disease Control. https://www.cdc.gov/leprosy/transmission/index.html#:~:text=In%20the%20southern%20United%20States,unlikely%20to%20get%20Hansen's%20disease.
