There are very few reptile diseases that are zoonotic(animal to human) but bacteria is another thing altogether. Bacteria is not species specific and as a result may cause pathogenic reactions in anything that it problems for humans. You should go to a doctor and tell him that you have reptiles and the symptoms that you are having. It is known that many food items that reptiles consume have disease causing bacteria and parasites that can effect humans....To rid your enclosures/water bowls of smell..spray a disinfectant with dilluted bleach solution.....I hope everything goes well.
