UTI?: You need to be reevaluated. Some strains of chlamydia may be resistant to Doxycycline and you may have more than a single issue in progress.

How long does it take for doxycycline to stop chlamydia pain. Or is there anything additional I can prescribed to relieve urination pain?

How long does it take for doxycycline to stop chlamydia pain. Or is there anything additional I can prescribed to relieve urination pain?

2 weeks: The Tetracycline is used against Chlamydia, generally for 2 weeks (there is no set period). However as far as pain is concerned in the urethra one can prescribe Pyridium (phenazopyridine) 100 mg Po three times a day for five days. Please remember that when a patient contracts one sexually transmitted disease, there is great chance that he has others. Severe urethral pain with discharge may indicate gonorrhea.

Was treated for chlamydia a month ago with a single dose of Azithromycin. No more painful urination, still have the bumps with less color. Why's this?

Was treated for chlamydia a month ago with a single dose of Azithromycin. No more painful urination, still have the bumps with less color. Why's this?

Not chlamydia (?): Something doesn't compute. Chlamydia does not cause skin "bumps" or any kind of skin problem. Sounds like you had something else in addition to chlamydia. (Genital warts, maybe?) Contact the doctor who diagnosed and treated you.

I tested negative for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea and took Azithromycin on 12/24 evening, how long does it take for dysuria symptoms to resolve? Thanks!

I tested negative for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea and took Azithromycin on 12/24 evening, how long does it take for dysuria symptoms to resolve? Thanks!

Soon, maybe: It is very unlikely that Chlamydia or Gonorrhea would cause dysuria, so this might be a bladder (urinary tract) infection. There are also other possibilities, none of which can be properly evaluated without an exam. IF it is a bladder infection and IF it is sensitive to azithromycin then you should be feeling better.

I am experiencing genital pain and pain with urination (quality: stinging or burning sensation). I have taken azithromycin today at approximately 11am. How long will it take for chlamydia to be cured?

Here are some...: If effective, the burning urination will start to ease in 24 hours and gradually fade away in 3-7 days, but with a widely variable pace among the patients. If not resolving as usually expected, seek re-evaluation timely by following suggestion in articles listed in http://formefirst. Com/onDealSickness. Html.

How long does painful urination associated with chylamatia last?

How long does painful urination associated with chylamatia last?

Here are some. ..: If the treated bug is sensitive to antibiotics, it should be killed and the inflamed tissue should start to heal instantly. The patient should feel better in1-3 days and becomes symptom-free in 5-7 days. But, at times, irritating symptoms may linger as long as weeks or even months, thought rarely. Besides, avoiding bladder irritants such as alcohol, coffee, spicy foods, etc. Would help.

Legal: Most state medical licensure boards require that a doctor establish a doctor-patient relationship before prescribing meds. This means a face to face evaluation. If a doctor prescribes medicine to someone they have no relationship with, they risk losing their license

BV? Trich? Yeast?: With the symptoms described, the main possibilities are trichomonas, bacterial vaginosis, or yeast infection. Herpes is possible but less likely unless open sores. A vaginal foreign body (e.g. a forgotten tampon) could do it. With this mix of symptoms, maybe more than one problem. If you can't afford private health care, check out a community clinic or the health department. Good luck!

See answer: Though treating you with Doxycycline was not inappropriate, it certainly is possible that your dysuria was not related to recurrent or residual chlamydia. Test-of-cure (i.e., repeat testing 3–4 weeks after completing therapy) is not advised for persons treated with the recommended or alternative regimens, unless therapeutic compliance is in question, symptoms persist, or reinfection is suspected.

I have chlamydia but never showed symptoms, now I am showing one symptom (burning urination) during treatment (1 day left), is this normal?

I have chlamydia but never showed symptoms, now I am showing one symptom (burning urination) during treatment (1 day left), is this normal?

One possible reason: Is that yeast infections can develop while on antibiotics. A clumpy (cottage cheese- like), white, non- odorous discharge associated w itching, burning, swelling or redness can be due to yeast infections.

How serious is chlamydia if you're urinating blood?

How serious is chlamydia if you're urinating blood?

Confirm diagnosis: Chlamydia might cause blood in the urine, but only very rarely. Recheck with your doctor about the diagnosis -- maybe not chlamydia at all, or chlamydia plus something else. Good luck!
