Sucking a finger w/ Anal Mucus

Question: 

Hello, your website is wonderful, and very informative, and up to date.
I went to a local strip club, and got a dance from a girl who told me she loved anal play and asked if I wanted to see some. So she showed my fingering her anus. She fingered herself then stuck her finger in my mouth. She did this 4 or 5 times. Could I have been infected with HIV from from anal mucus or any small amounts of blood that were on her finger when she stuck it in my mouth? I did have a 2 day old tiny canker sore on the tip of my tongue, and the next day I found another scratch/cold sore in between my upper gums and cheek.
Please let me know how significant my risk was if she was positive.
Thank You

Answer: 

Hello, taking body fluids into the mouth that may pass HIV, including vaginal, anal fluids and semen and blood is considered a low risk activity ( giving oral sex) associated with passing HIV. A professional dancer is no more likely to pass HIV than any one else and it is the activities of unprotected vaginal intercourse, unprotected anal intercourse and injecting with shared needles that are considered high risks for transmission of HIV infection.

The mouth has enzymes in the saliva that actually break down HIV and while you are likely not going to be exposed to HIV infection from this activity, we always recommend that all sexually active persons regularly test for all sexually transmitted infections, including HIV.

The woman is most probably not living with HIV.
