This year appeared two wounds ... and in this period of last year until now not kept sexual relationship with anyone, decide to do it again and it was negative.

It could be a dermatological i.e. skin problem if you have VDRL results showing up negative.

You're probably fine. If you absolutely feel the need to retest, get a treponeme specific test (Trep EIA, or TPPA).
