I just took Azithromycin for Chlamydia a few days ago, can I take Fluconazole for a possible yeast infection or is it dangerous to combine the two?

In brief: No problem

These two drugs won't interfere with one another, and no increased chance of side effects.
In fact, this is a pretty common combination, because antibiotics like azithromycin sometimes trigger yeast infections. (Maybe that's what happened to you.) So no worries; take the fluconazole as it was prescribed.
