help please!

in August 2017 I had an oral presentation with a sex worker, it was fast and after we had vaginal sex with a condom, I think I had some symptoms. One month ago I had some acnes in my chest and in a few days I had two little wounds in the my elbows, can it be syphilis ??? 8 months ago, no fever or swollen lymph nodes, I'm very nervous and anxious, please respond!

Hi If you contracted syphilis 8 months ago you would have already  had the next 2 stages of syphilis including possible brain infection and foot and hands rash. you can test for syphilis if you want to reduce your anxiety

Is it possible to show no symptoms at both stages?
Get tested. Best thing you can do. I'm waiting for my results.
