In brief: No
Secondary syphilis has many different appearances, but pustules aren't among them. If you are concerned you may have syphilis (and few of us haven't put ourselves at risk!), a syphilis serology from your physician's office can either reassure you or get you on the path to a cure that can save your life.
I admire your proactive approach and candor -- good luck.
