Risk or Paranoia?

This may sound silly..
I was in Africa and a girl lightly bit my bottom lip (she didn't draw an blood). It just so happens that her teeth touched right where I had a dark red mark on the inside of my lip. It might have been a sore, I'm not sure, but the red mark didn't hurt and it didn't seem to be bleeding. (I had no blood in my saliva when I spat afterwards.) Also, I was sitting with her for a good 10 minutes before this incident so at least know she didn't just floss her teeth or something.
I read that saliva inhibits HIV, and that the lack of salt destroys blood in the mouth...

Is there ANY risk from this experience or am I a paranoid lunatic?

Thanks.
