Can Chlamydia Be Transmitted By Sharing A Bath

Patient: I was recently diagnosed with chlamydia, and had shared a bath with my infant son shortly before… could he have contracted it that way? should i test him as well?

Symptoms: None

Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.Infection may be spread by any form of contact that involves body fluids and hence shari ng a bath may, although not as likely, spread the disease. Get him examined by a Pediatrician and find out if testing is necessary.Hope this helps.
