needle *****

Dear teak/lizzie you,
Yesterday i went to a temple in india and i was barefoot(without shoes)
there were a lot of people around me there. when i was walking i just felt a prick on my feet as if some needle got into my feet as i stepped on the needle.
i could see a little blood coming out of the prick.
I could not check the needle and dont know what kind of needle was it because there were too many people around me.
now i am scared as hell if somebody else before me got pricked by the same needle and there was blood on it and immediately i got pricked.
is there a risk of hiv from this.
do i need to get tested.
please help...
