HIV anxiety after prostitute

Hello, I am a 24 year old guy, traveled to brussels 3days ago and had a protected oral sex/sex with a female sex worker in red light district.

Though both of sexual contacts were protected, after I had sex I figured it out that I had a new small scratch on top of my feet, which might be caused by my new uncomfortable shoes during daytime.

Could it be risky of HIV, or any kinds of bacterial diseases?
Thank you for reading and looking forward to hearing from you.

Hello,
Certainly no risk of HIV or any other blood borne virus.
The most you could get would be a simple skin infection from the dirty floor.  Nothing else to worry about.
Best wishes

Thank you for your kind reply.
So, I don't have to worry about any virus or take any test if I used condom, right?
