HIV transmission through scab/sex

I had a scab on my lower penis shaft due to dermatologist-applied liquid nitrogen treatment, and this scab fell off, leaving raw-(healing) skin exposed and a red dot  (I'm guessing it's dried blood or part of the scab that hadn't fallen off).  My doctor said I was safe to have protected sex.

Anyways, I had protected sex a couple of days ago, and the condom covered everything, except this post-scab.  What is the risk of contracting HIV through this? (It was not bleeding before or after the sex)

No risk. It would benefit you to seek professional help for your HIV phobias.
