In brief: Don't worry

Very very very low risk.
1 in a 10 million at most, and thats assuming the child has hiv.

In brief: False worries

I doubt that you have to worry about a nosebleed from a two year old.
For the amount of time the blood was on your skin and with lack of an open sore, the odds of getting infected are non existent.
