You are worrying needlessly. I've read your details carefully. Nothing you are reporting would have put you at risk for HIV transmission. The kind of contact you are concerned about with an HIV+ person was not a risk. Period. HIV is a fragile virus and not transmitted through that kind of contact.

Stop worrying and get on with your life. There is no need for testing.

I have read all your questions carefully and agree 100% with moderator Andy , you did NOT have a risk . 

HIV is fragile and easily damaged rendering it unable to infect the instant its exposed to air , that's why sores on HIV positive people pose no risk in the transmission of HIV .

You can put this out of your mind , you simply could not have gotten HIV from your friend in this manner .

HIV is acquired from unprotected penetrative vaginal or anal sex , from sharing drug injection equipment and from mother to child during childbirth . I wouldn't  think any of these situations are something you are doing with your friends so don't worry about getting HIV from them .
