Can penicillin cure chlamydia?

Answer

The Illinois Department of Public Health states that penicillin is not an effective treatment for chlamydia. The infection is curable and is most often treated with antibiotics.

The treatment for chlamydia is the same regardless of whether or not a person is HIV-positive. According to the Illinois Department of Public Health, abstaining from sex for seven days after administration of single-dose antibiotics is important in preventing the spread of the infection. A patient receiving a week-long course of antibiotics should avoid sex for the duration of treatment. People often experience repeat infections, especially if their sex partners have not been correctly treated.
