Thanks for posting your query.

Penicillin and related antibiotics (beta-lactams) cannot cure chlamydia; other antibiotics can.

The usual treatment for chlamydia is antibiotics, including tetracyclines, azithromycin, or erythromycin.

Antibiotic treatment, if taken exactly as directed, normally cures chlamydia infections. If antibiotics are not taken properly, the infection will not be cured.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have any more concerns.

Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Wishing you good health.
