I've never heard of someone getting infected from picking their nose. I certainly never been a cause for transmission that the CDC has ever looked into.

In real life people get infected from unprotected sex or needle use and the common denominator in transmission is the the virus is NOT exposed to the outside environment, which would kill it.

So....even if you had infected vaginal fluid dripping off your finger. After a minute it would probably be a) pretty dry, b) exposed to air and c) no longer at a warm temp. Not to mention the higher concentrations of HIV are found in the Cervial fluid which is pretty high up in the vagina.

Again, you get infected from unprotected sex and sharing needles. Not from picking your nose after you fingered someone.
