Could you not keep the mice and just wear gloves when handling them? Also, you didn't mention in your post, so I am probably stating the obvious, but after the bite, did you immediately wash in some kind of disinfecting solution? BandAid makes a cleansing foam that you use to wash any kind of bite or scrape with. When I've been bitten, I've immediately put that on and never had a problem with infection (though admittedly, I don't have a compromised immune system either).
