Does HIV live in wart fluid secretions ?

I was exposed to a strangers wart that was seeping fluid. I did not know he had it until it was too late. He was fixing my nails at a local salon. Unfortunately - I am now freaking out from this disgusting and 100% preventable exposure. SO - I know that there is a good chance I could get a hand wart although I have no scrapes and abbrasions on my hands. Is it possible I could have transmitted HIV from this? Does HIV live in wart fluid secretions? UGH - I'm just really freaked out about it. Yuck.
