Finger in vagina (2 minutes)

End december, I went to a prostitute's shop window. I did not take off my clothes. I just touched the woman's body, her breasts and then inserted one finger into the vagina (~ 2 minutes) after her consent.

Right after and without touching myself, I rinsed my hands with the soap. But, my anxiety started after seeing a small wound (burned me when I used the disinfectant gel on my hands) on the inside of the adjacent finger (which i did not insert it). The following days, I had a sore throat, a sore neck, and a stomach ache with swelling. Was I at risk?

The only risks for HIV in adults are:
1) Having unprotected (no condom) penetrative anal or vaginal sex, OR
2) Sharing IV drug equipment with other IV drug users.

No other event that you can think of, including the event you mentioned, puts you at risk for HIV.  You CANNOT get HIV through your hands or your fingers, even if you have cuts.  Whatever medical issues you are experiencing have nothing to do with HIV, and you do not need to test for this no-risk event.
