Hiv risk?

A woman asked me to take her a photo near the sunset. I said yes, she gave me her phone and I saw that it had a cracked screen. Unfortunately, i had already touched the screen for a few seconds. I had a little scratch on my hand from  3 days ago. I didn't notice any visible cut from the screen. There was something like a papercut without blood on my hand but I am not sure if it was from this.
Am I at hiv risk or hepc?

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

There isn't any other situation that you can think of that would put you at risk for HIV. HIV does not infect via minor cuts and scrapes.  The only risks involving wounds would occur when both parties are injured so severely that they require immediate medical attention to stop the bleeding.

You had zero risk for HIV and should move on.
