No risk. Below are the only possible risk for HIV transmission in adults.
1. Unprotected vaginal or anal intercourse
2. Sharing IV needles to inject drugs with other drug abusers.

You were never at risk and don't need to test.

Oral sex doesn't carry a 'low' risk but is no risk.  Saliva and air inactivate the virus.  No one has gotten HIV that has been proven and documented from oral sex to date.  The only ways adults get Hiv is from unprotected vaginal or anal sex or sharing IV drug needles.  You do not need to test again. And yes, that goes for if you have balanitis or not.
