Unprotected sex, partner developed syphilis, had a sore on the penis during sex. Chances of me unknowingly passing the disease to the partner?

A few months ago I had a sore on my penis , I think due to friction between my pants and my penis or penis and thigh, when i thought I got better I had Drunk unprotected Sex with a girl I was flirting with. a day past, I developed some sort of rash which I cleaned with a disinfectant and it faded away. 2 and a half weeks past, the girl complained of having syphilis . But I was fine. the only changes i observed in my body was a swollen lymph node on the right side of my genital area which lasted for a few days and it felt like it was back to normal. My Fear is I might have syphilis yet I haven t been diagnosed and I might have passed it to that girl without knowledge of the disease, could it be possible that i have the disease?? Need Help please. if theres is any information you d like to know i m free to cooperate.

hi
syphilis causes ulcer over penis.
lymph nodes can be enlarged due to many causes,infection is the commonest one.
syphilis is diagnosed by VDRL test .
it is not that common now.
if you have any doubt,consult your doctor and get it done.
As it is caused by bacteria ,antibiotics will cure this.
nothing to worry.
Wish you good health.
