Chlamydia: no it should not take any longer to cure it. You may want to return to your doctor after treatment to be rechecked for a cure. Discuss this with your doctor.

A 29-year-old member asked:

What is an anal chlamydia infection like?

Rectal symptoms: Rectal pain, pain on defecation, and rectal bleeding or discharge. Remember that some anal chlamydia, especially in gay men, is due to a type of chlamydia called lymphogranuloma venereum (lgv), which requires a longer course of treatment than standard chlamydia. Not all labs can tell the difference.

A 18-year-old female asked:

I had a blister on my toe but the skin broke and now there is just a piece of skin hanging there and it hurts. What do I do? When will it heal?

The loose skin : Should be trimmed away, the blister cleaned, then dressed with an antibiotic ointment and then covered with a band aid. It will take a few days, but the soreness will gradually decrease as the skin under the blister dries out and toughens up.

Doctor can evaluate: For new onset of asthma symptoms in an adult, he can see and follow-up with his primary care doctor. If symptoms are difficult to get rid of, or are unusual, the patient can see an allergy & asthma specialist, and/or see a pulmonologist (lung doctor). Pulmonary function tests and allergy tests can be helpful when looking for the best treatments. For bad symptoms, the E.R. Is the place to go to.

Unlikely: If all testing negative, i doubt it. You may have simply not ovulated last cycle and that is why you are so late. Are your periods normally regular? Check with your obgyn and good luck.
