Hiv positive friend

Hello, I met with a friend that is hiv positive and is not on treatment currently. He was sweating a lot. I have a little scratch on the top of my hand. I gave him a hug hello, we had lunch and a drink together, then I gave him a hug goodbye. Is there any risk of me getting hiv from his sweat on my scratch?

You CANNOT get HIV from normal, everyday, or any casual contact.

Don't have unprotected sex with your friend, and don't share intravenous needles with your friend, and you will NEVER get HIV from him.
