|Chlamydia- cant take antibiotics
Apr 23, 2012
Hi Ive tested positive for chlamydia but I cant take the recommended azithromycin or doxycycline due to reactions because of an existing condition I have. Whats my best option? Ive heard untreated chlamydia will resolve within 6months (male) Is this the case? Would it be beneficial to find natural alternatives?

Hello there- I would encourage that you talk with a medical provider- there are other alternative antibiotics that you can take, erythromycin or levofloxacin. Treatment is necessary and I would not recommend otherwise. Take care,
