HIV nose mucus enters clapped cut lips

Question

A realative of mines is infected with HIV/AIDS. I gave this relative a kiss on the cheak, thinking that It was not possible to become infected. Unfortunately my relatives nose was dripping mucus due to the cold weather. Some of the mucus fom her nose dropped on my chapped lips. I had some antibacteria liquid in my purse, therefore I put some on my lips. My lips started to burn, therefore I looked in a miror saw small cuts on my lips. Is it possible that I am now infected?
