You didn't have a risk. HIV is not spread outside its host.

HIV is a weak virus and does not infect this way, when it is exposed to air it becomes inactive. It will not become active again, therefore even though you had jock itch the virus will not enter that area outside of your body. It would take place inside without a condom.
You didn't have a risk this way. Your using condoms and it protects you from the virus.
