HIV risk?: No. Hiv is not caught through skin to skin contact. There is zero risk here, even if there are 'cuts' on the finger's skin.

Better to avoid: Hiv infection transmit by sharing blood, blood product or body fluid . Intact skin usually protect the transmission . However, chances remain if repeatedly exposed to HIV infected genital secretion.
