I was on vacation in Madrid, Spain exactly two weeks ago and one night, I was taking a walk through the gay neighborhood with my friend. We stopped at a diner and I noticed two very small cuts on one of my fingers (2-3 mm). I don't remember coming into contact with anything sharp. I just gave a lighter to some random person on the street who returned it to me after using it for something (I couldn't see what he was doing exactly). Anyway, so now, I have a sore throat and a little pain in my neck (I can't really say if it's swollen or not). My question is, could I be infected? I don't remember seeing anything suspicious around the cuts except for a little torn skin. Thank you for your attention and I'll be looking forward to your reply.
