Hiv infection

My concern about possibly being infected with HIV is due to an experience I had at strip club 4 nights ago. I was in a private dance booth receiving a lap dance and during this time the stripper was masturbating me (handjob), until I came. My concern about possibly being infected with HIV is because I suffer from genital psoriasis. Basically the kind that appears like reddish spots on head and shaft. There was no bleeding from these areas when I inspected them post-dance, however I could see very small scratch with some liquid, but nothing more. I squeezed the skin on that point just to be sure, no blood came out. I keepp wondering about that "what if" regarding the genital psoriasis coming into contact with blood that I did not notice that was on her hands (but I didn't check her for hands) I have read that HIV blood must come into contact with open wounds/breaks in skin. I am curious about whether my genital psoriais is still considered an opening/break in skin that puts me at risk? Or is the psoriasis talk irrelevant anyway, because handjobs are safe no matter what. Even if the Psoriasis had bled slightly? Can you please help me? I am.very concerned

There is no need for concern. There was no exchange of bodily fluids between you and the lap dancer
