Ive been on clindamycin for an infection in my mouth due to a tooth, meanwhile my boyfriend has contracted chlamidia an std. i was told that the antibiotics may have cleared mine up could that be true
Response from Dr. McGowan
Clindamycin has some activity against Chlamydia trachomatis but it is inferior to azithromycin or doxycycline. I would not rely on the clindamycin as adequate to treat the chlamydia that you may have contracted from your boyfriend. Thanks, Joe
