HiV transmitted by scratching

I've got a question, I work as a Security guard in a local club, and last night some guy scratched me beneath the eye, it's a very small scratch, but I was bleeding a little, very little, like a drop literally . I am not paranoid, but I've heard that you can get HiV or similar diseases that way...I know it's probably false, but I just need to double check and ask a real doctor. Thank you

HIV never transmits through nail scratching on skin. There is no doctor here on community forum, you may consult a doctor elsewhere.
