Hi welcome to Healthcaremagic

Hi Sheni.., Transmission of HIV by parenteral is 90%, to either complete blood transmission, or contact with pricks with Unsterilized needles and syringes can infect HIV.., But in your case , if the abrasion is dry, then you wont get infected.., If there is intact skin, contact of infected blood will not transmit ..,
Hope I have answered your question..
