Patient :Hello, i have Chlamydia. I am being treated right now for it. it is about cleared up. i went to the bathroom (went pee holding my penis) and forgot to wash my hands. About 10 mins later i notice me watching tv and biting my nails. Is there a way i could spread chlamydia to my throat? Is that even possible? please let me know.
Symptoms: Thinking in my head I'm developing a sore throat but throat doesn't hurt
Thanks for the query.
There are chances of contracting a throat infection through contact of genitals with the hand and again introducing the same to the oral cavity.There is not much to worry as you are already on treatment, that is antibiotic cover for the infection. Warm saline gargles three times a day will help you feel better and prevent chances of infection.
If you have any further queries regarding the present complaint, Please post in the comments below.
Hope this helped.
