Can you get toxoplasmosis from a cut?

Does anyone know if you can get toxoplasmosis through broken skin or does it have to be ingested?

I was washing some vegetables last night and I didn't realise I had a cut on my thumb. Really worried now I could have been inadvertently infected as I wasn't wearing gloves sad

I think that is really unlikely!

No, it has to be ingested. You will be just fine, stop worrying smile
