Zithromax is an antibiotic used to treat inflammatory infections such as chlamydia. Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases in the UK, which is particularly common in young, sexually active people. Chlamydia is often symptom-free and its identification can be challenging. When symptoms occur about 1 to 3 weeks after infection, they appear especially as itching and tingling when urinating. In others, it can be almost unbearable. Clear discharge can drain from the urethra, and the amount of discharge can increase in women.

Chlamydia treatment with azithromycin

The active ingredient in Zithromax is azithromycin. Chlamydia is caused by a bacterium that multiplies and grows in the human body by producing protein. Azithromycin prevents bacteria from producing protein by attacking their cells in the nucleus. Thus, the bacteria is overcome and the body’s immune system is able to overcome the inflammation.
