Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.
Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description, there was no active fresh bleeding at that time and wound is not so deep so chances of HIV transmission from fingering with cut on finger are very slim to nil.

So you needn't to worry at all.

You are safe.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.
