Chlamydia

03/03/2003

Question:

When you get chlamydia can it come back?

Answer:

There are several forms of chlamydia infection including eye, pneumonia and genital tract infection. Thus, it is unclear which of the forms are in question because each of these is somewhat different. The genital tract infection is known to recur and thus one can be infected again. This statement is true also for the eye form of chlamydia disease. For the pneumonia, it is unclear.
