Syphilis sore at 7 weeks post eposure??

Hi, I'm still worried about last halloween, I got drunk and gave another man oral sex for like 1 or 2 minutes, I stopped cause he had a small lighter bump on the foreskin on the tip of his penis, he claimed it was an old scar result of a car accident.
Like 4 or 5 days ago I had somesing bothering me on the back of my throat, yesterday I got worried about it and decided to check on the mirror. Not only did a couple of tiny drops of blood taint the saliva I spat due to gag reflex, but I also noticed a small sore resembling a pustule.

Can this be due to syphilis???

Possible if his sore touched that area, but unlikely

I think it did. The dr gave me azithromicine and I think it's gone away, it's just reddened and a little swollen still. Should I still get a VDRL?
