Waxing and HIV

I had the skin above my upper lip waxed today. After the attendant pulled the wax strip off my skin, she placed her finger directly on my skin a few seconds. I tested negative for HIV a few weeks ago. Could she give me HIV this way? I  looked at both her hands and didn't see any wounds on her skin. I am becoming increasingly upset right now thinking about it.

Not at all.
It is not possible to tranmit HIV that way.
No need to worry.
Best wishes,
Dr José
