Thanks for writing to us.
A small abrasion if it is not associated with bleeding and has not occurred from an infected used needle then it is unlikely to transmit HIV infection.
If any hypodermic needle has caused the abrasion then it is best to get yourself screened for HIV.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
