how to relieve me from the fear of hiv?

Some days ago I got a wound on my leg, and I use wet tissue which is passed by a sex worker(not very sure) to clean that wound (not fresh, about 5 hrs after I got this wound).

From then on I'm deep in fear of hiv. I began to wonder if that sex worker got a cut in her finger and the tissue paper was contaminated by her blood (because I was a little drunk that day and I can't remember the exact scenario), and then I used it to contact my wound I would at risk. After all the online consult EVERYONE told me the risk is 0 even if the the circumstance I presumed is real.

I know they are right, but at the same time, the knowledge of hiv transmission that I learned can't convince me the risk is TOTALLY ZERO, but I'm still in the mud of fear, and I keep asking the same questions. Now it leads to a situation that when I think about the wound in my leg, I can't stop the fear and anxiety in my mind.

Relieve me please because I'm living in paranoid.

You will be fine it's so hard to catch HIV unless you having sex. If she had a cut it would not be there

Thanks for your reply, but I don't understand the meaning of "it would not be there"
