Azithromycin 1 dose: Trachoma is effectively treated with a single 1 g dose of azithromycin by mouth. It can also be treated with tetracycline ophthalmic ointment, but this requires 6 weeks treatment, so why bother? As for other chlamydial infections, probably doxycycline or minocycline twice daily for a week would be effective, but these have not been studied.
