My ex had chlamydia, I believe she gave it to me, is it curable? Because after we had sexual intercourse, I started getting these white smelly discharge all around my penis, I shower everyday, I keep myself clean, but it just seems not to go away. It would itch also, at first it would seem like white bumps but when I wipe it off, it s just the white smelly discharge, help

Hello,
Welcome to HCM,

Chlamydia is 100% curable if I am your doctor I advice you that chlamydia is treated by either doxycycline 100 mg two times a day or azithromycin 1gm single dose.

You can take one of the antibiotics prescribed above. During the week of treatment please avoid sexual intercourse to get away of the cross infection to the partner.

Partner also given the same treatment for same period. once both of you are cured, you can resume with sexual activity.

Thank you.
