Brief Answer:
No risk of STDs

Detailed Answer:
Hello. thank you.
I an Dr. Kakkar (Dermatologist and Venereologist). I have gone through your query and I have noted your concern.

There is no risk of STDs through this particular incident that you mention here.
There is no risk of acquisition of STDs through the skin of hands. Skin is a tough barrier. STDs are only transmitted through direct contact of either genital, anal or oral mucosae with infected secretions or mucosal surfaces e.g unprotected vaginal, anal or oral sex. Never through the skin.
