If I was treated with the appropriate shot of penicillin one day after possible exposure to Syphilis, is this enough to cure it?

In brief: STD prophylaxis

Syphilis is very susceptible to penicillin, and the prophylactic dose is sufficient to protect, but a sustained blood level is given by only certain types of penicillin, so check with your physician to see which kind was given.
