athlete's foot and chlamydia?
my doctor called me today said i am postive for chlamydia and i called the 2 other people i have been with sexually and they both "said" they were tested recently and they dont have anything. Of course i know i cant take thier word for it thats why im just not going to bother with it because i already have medicine to take my infection away. anyways, i did some looking around and found out that chlamydia is a bacteria infection. my boyfriend has a really bad athlete's foot infection and always scrahes them. without thinking, we most likely had sex and his fingers were down in my area. sense athlete's foot is a bacteria, and bacteria sticks on fingers(skin) could that have caused my bacteria infection(chlmaydia). i know its most likely from having sex with someone who has it already, but i would like to think outside the box and give a reasonable question.

Hi

Athlete's foot is NOT a bacteria, its a fungal infection.   So athlete's foot is not caused by chlamydia.   And Therefore, you weren't infected that way.    

Did you have any symptoms (maybe you had a false positive) ?
You bf needs to get tested and treated as well, no sex for a 1 week.

P.S
buy some Tough Actin Tinactin (anti-fungal) spray for your boyfriend's athlete's foot.   That **** works.
