Hi, From your description to what happened, I see no reason for you to worry. There was direct exchange of body fluid didn't occur. Once HIV leaves the body it dies within minutes. Our bodies also start the healing process for cuts and scraps immediately putting up a barrier to things entering your body.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
