Dr. Hasan :

Hi, Thanks for your question. I'm Dr. Hasan and I'll try to help you.

Dr. Hasan :

Since how long you have these symptoms of conjuctivitis?

JACUSTOMER-iwudxiqs- :

about a week

Dr. Hasan :

and when exactly you had the negative urine test?

JACUSTOMER-iwudxiqs- :

today

JACUSTOMER-iwudxiqs- :

provided sample on Wednesday

Dr. Hasan :

When exactly you had the antibiotics finished?

Dr. Hasan :

Do you have redness of eyes?

JACUSTOMER-iwudxiqs- :

Single dose of azythrimicin on 20 october

JACUSTOMER-iwudxiqs- :

a little redness, not much

Dr. Hasan :

Thanks a lot for your input. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want.

JACUSTOMER-iwudxiqs- :

ok

Dr. Hasan :

Yes it is possible to have a chlamydial conjuctivitis even after a negative urine test.

JACUSTOMER-iwudxiqs- :

OK - thank you

JACUSTOMER-iwudxiqs- :

carried on from the original infection?

Dr. Hasan :

Urine infection doesn't rule out infection in whole body

Dr. Hasan :

Yes most likely carried from original infection.

JACUSTOMER-iwudxiqs- :

so best treatment for the eyes?

Dr. Hasan :

Although as per symptoms you have described, I don't think that you have chlamydial conjuctvitis

JACUSTOMER-iwudxiqs- :

oh

Dr. Hasan :

It sounds more like allergic conjuctivitis.

JACUSTOMER-iwudxiqs- :

what would i expect if it was chlam. conj?

JACUSTOMER-iwudxiqs- :

Would I have more pus-like discharge

Dr. Hasan :

See your doctor but till then try OTC claritin once daily.

Dr. Hasan :

Yes with that you must have more pus discharge, more redness etc

JACUSTOMER-iwudxiqs- :

ok - thanks!

Dr. Hasan :

Watery discharge and itching make chlamydia less likely.

Dr. Hasan :

You are most welcome.

JACUSTOMER-iwudxiqs- :

right - good to hear!

Dr. Hasan :

Any question please?

JACUSTOMER-iwudxiqs- :

no - thanks!
