No risk, no worry: Zero risk; there's never been a case of HIV known to be transmitted by oral-skin contact, anywhere on the body. Even oral sex is nearly risk free: there's never been a proved case of HIV transmitted oral to genital. It probably doesn't matter even if there is blood in the mouth, because saliva inactivates HIV. You'll never get HIV sexually except by unprotected vaginal or anal sex.
