Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Brief Answer:
No risk of HIV.

There is no risk of HIV with the exposure you had mentioned so don't get tensed or worried. To relieve your anxiety you can go for HIV testing with 4th generation HIV Duos test and the negative result will clear all your doubts. If still any doubt is there feel free to ask me again.
