Hello,
Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease caused by the bacterium known as chlamdia trachomatis.It results in painful urination,penile discharge,swollen testis,fever etc.
Untreated cases or partially treated cases or people who receive their treatment late can develop epidydmitis.
Epidydmitis should be aggressively treated as delayed treatment can result in infertility of the person.
Treatment involves use of azithromycin,doxycycline,erythromycin,ofloxacin etc.
Thanks
