|Can I relax.......?

Afternoon Dr Wohl
I hope this email finds you well and happy.
I am 28 years old and yesterday gave my friends gardener a bag of old clothes I dont wear anymore. He was very gratefull and grabbed my hand to shake it. I afterwards noticed that the hand he shook, had 2 small grazes on it, from accidently dragging my hand against a wall whilst jogging the day before. I dont even know if the gardener was HIV posotive, but he was african (know this doesn't matter) and I live in S.A.
My boyfriend comes home tomorrow and we would obviously want to be intimate. Would this still be ok? Can I?
Am I Being Silly and paranoid for no reason?
Thanks and Regards
