Fingering and HIV

I am freaking out. I was messing around with a guy two weeks ago (just making out, etc) and then I decided to finger him. I kept fingering him and then I noticed some blood under my fingernail as a result of cutting him inside his anus. My fingernail had a tingle to it and when I pressed down it looked like more blood came out. I dont know if I was cut by my own fingernail and/or he was cut inside is anus. I truly believe I had a cut under my finger AND he was cut inside his anus as well and there was blood. I just sent him a text to clarify his status and he said that he is HIV+. What do I do bc I am freaking out? Should I get testing? Was this a risk?

You can stop freaking out right now!!  This is not a risk, you will not get HIV from fingering with or without cuts.

You do not need to test you do not need to worry further about this incident.
