Could a single touch transmit Syphilis

Yesterday I got a bruise on my foot, which is tiny and never bleed. I went to the hospotal and asked a doctor if I needed some desinfection. The doctor touched the bruise and said not necesarry.

My question is, could I get somo disease such as Syphilis since he touched my lession? I don't know if she has a sore on her finger so I am a little worried.

Please give me some advise.

No chance of syphilis whatsoever. They call them sexually transmitted diseases for a reason: sex is required for transmission. Don't worry about it.

Thank you so much. But people say the direct contact with a sore couid lead to the transmission. I want to know if it is possible for the doctor to have a sore on her finger that could infect me?

A syphilitic soreon the finger??  Ando you really think there is any chance that a trained doctor would touch a patient with an open sore on the finger? If he had touched your wound with his penis, you might have a reason to be concerned.
