i gave oral job to a guy and then he cum on my face, and mouth also covered, then we kissed and i felt sting on my lip when my lip touch his beard. when i got home i found a new wound on my lip. Am I in risk of hiv?

i understand saliva deactivate it, but it is on the outside of the lip and could beard sting push the semen inside the wound?

Your situation involves personal contact with an object in air  (maybe blood, maybe cuts, wound, lip, hand, beard, etc. ) . You will be happy to learn that you had no risk, because you can't get hiv from personal contact except unprotected penetrating vaginal or anal with a penis, neither of which you did and you didn't share hollow needles to inject with which is the only other way to acquire hiv - there are ONLY 3 ways to get hiv. Note that 2 of them require a penis and the third requires a hollow injecting shared needle - there are no OTHER ways to get hiv. Analysis of large numbers of infected people over the 40 years of hiv history has proven that people don't get hiv in the way you are worried is a risk.
Hiv is a fragile virus in air or saliva and is effectively instantly dead in either air or saliva so the WORST that could happen is dead virus rubbed you, and obviously anything which is dead cannot live again so you are good. Blood and cuts would not be relevant in your situation since the hiv has become effectively dead, so you don't have to worry about them to be sure that you are safe.
There is no reason for a person to test when they are safe. The advice took into consideration that the other person might be positive, so move on and enjoy life instead of thinking about this non-event. hiv prevention is straightforward since there are only 3 ways you can become infected, so next time you wonder if you had a risk, ask yourself this QUESTION. "Did I do any of the 3?" Then after you ANSWER "No, there wasn't a penis in an anus or vagina and I wasn't injected" you will know that it's time to move on back to your happy life.
No one got hiv from what you did during 40 years of hiv history and no one will get it in the next 40 years of your life either.  You can do what you did any time and be safe from hiv.
The other person's status is irrelevant when you have no exposure to live virus.
If you still have questions about your risk, after reading all of the above, then it is because you didn't answer the QUESTION above.
If hiv was as infectious as you think then we would all have it by now because everyone gets cut lots of times every year.

Hello AnxiousNoMore
great thanks for your reply, just wondering about the beard sting on the wound when its covered with the fluid, will that be similar to the hollow needles to inject?
When you go to a clinic to get an injection, do they use beard hairs?
Then obviously there is no similarity.
thanks AnxiousNoMore and CurfewX for advising, great to know that there is no risk. is testing recommended? after how long test can be certain?
I don't think you understand what "no risk" means. WHY would you test for a disease that you cannot possibly have?

Forget about HIV and move on with your life.
You didn't answer the QUESTION above. Answer is > No there wasn't a penis in my anus and he didn't needle inject me so I should move on.
