Help me

I recently went to an establishment that runs porn movies in private rooms.  I watched a movie (by myself).  Upon leaving I wiped my hands off (I did not ejaculate) with a non-alcohol wipe.  I proceded to wipe my figures that touched the buttons in the booth.  I then wiped the top of my hand that had an scabbed over open wound.  I am concurned that I may have infected myself with HIV.  I this a rational fear?
Thank you,
Mike.
