Hi and thanks for the query.

HIV can only transmit if the blood containing the active virus comes in contact with a bleeding or raw surface on the recipient. In this case, this was a pimple which is a hermetically sealed space containing blood and pus. And this did not come in contact with any raw or bleeding surface in order for the virus to transmit. So, you will not get HIV with such a contact.
