Hiv Risk

1. My finger got nicked by a sharp art supplies tool, and my finger began to bleed. What if someone before me nicked their finger as well.  I'm wondering am I at risk? Do I need to go and get tested?

2. I had fresh semen on hand/ fingers wiped it off with a napkin and then processed to eat food.  Say if I licked my fingers as I ate, can I get hiv?

I will be getting tested this week for a peace of mind.

HIV is only spread by unprotected anal or vaginal sex or by sharing IV drug needles with infected users. Nothing else, including both of the scenarios you've posted, are a risk for HIV.
