Although skin contact and open sores tend to increase the risk of contracting HIV, is the risk less if there is no bleeding and not a huge exchange of body fluids involved. It is impossible to exclude the possibility 100% - unless you have blood tests done, but by the sound the risk is not too high.

I don' t think you should worry much really.
There is a chance of infection though is she does have it.
but again I would say do not stress or worry too much about this.
Have yourself tested just in case, I don' t know how long after infection it would take to show though

If you are worried about it, it is enough reason to go for a test. Could be could be not
