Answer

Answer

Chlamydial conjunctivitis can be treated with doxycycline 100 mg twice a day for 10 days or azithromycin 1 g. Erythromycin can be used in pregnant patients and infants. Topical therapy with erythromycin also is recommended and may speed resolution. As with gonococcal infections, identify and treat patients' sexual partners.
