Fresh Bleeding Wound Contact with Precum HIV Need Help

Hi all,

I'm a gay man living in Indonesia,

Last week, I gave a handjob to a stranger. He asked me to edge him, so I complied. After an hour, we ran out of lubes and as I tried to squeeze the last drop of lubes from the bottle, I cut my index finger.

I didn't realize that I cut my finger, so I continued to give the handjob. But then I realized a reddish spot in my index finger and I immediately stop. The wound started to bleed and I ran to the bathroom and clean my hand in running water.

I am afraid that his precum might enter my open wound since I have no idea that my hand got cut by the lubricant bottle, and it was a fresh, bleeding, open wound. I saw that parts of my skin was removed and I can see the next layer of my skin in the wound.

Am I at risk of infection? If his precum entered my wound without me noticing it? Since it was a fresh bleeding wound?

Thank you.

No, you absolutely can't get HIV from a small wound.  HIV does not transmit via small amounts of blood and small cuts and scrapes that do not require emergency medical attention.  If your wound did not require a visit to the hospital, you were never at risk for HIV.

The only risks for HIV in adults are:
1) Having unprotected anal or vaginal sex, or
2) sharing intravenous needles with IV drug users.

If you don't do either of those activities with someone whose HIV status is unknown to you, or who is HIV+, you will NEVER have to worry about HIV.  
Thank you so much for your explanation, CurfewX, so it doesn matter if his precum came into contact with my scrapes right? I can rest my mind easy now, I'll get tested just in case after 28 days..
You had ZERO risk for HIV and you do not need to test.  It would be a waste of a test and everybody's time.
Thank you for the firm answer, I guess my anxiety got me, I was so afraid since my partner was leaking so much precum, and after surfing the internet and reading that precum is a risk factor, I became paranoid. Thank you for the answer, again!
