Covid-19 symptom could be chlamydia - key signs to look out for

Covid-19 could actually be a sign of having a sexually transmitted infection (STI). Having a 'low-grade' fever - a slightly raised temperature between 37.5°C and 38.3°C - not only indicates the virus, but could also be a symptom of chlamydia., one of the UK's most common STIs.

Superdrug's Doctor Zenon Andreoua says this 'chlamydia fever' is mainly associated with men, with other symptoms possibly indicating the STI including: Unusual itching around the opening of the penis Clear or coloured discharge from the urethra. Tenderness or pain in the testicles Pain or burning during urination Doctor Andreoua says if chlamydia is left untreated it can lead to fertility problems.Other complications can also include epididymitis, which causes inflammation of the epididymis - the tube which carries sperm from the testicle."This can result in very painful swelling of the testicles and can occur in one or both tubes," Doctor Zenon warned.He added: "In some cases, chlamydia in men can also infect the rectum causing inflammation.

This condition is known as proctitis and the inflammation is accompanied by a sticky discharge and pain." The NHS explains: "Chlamydia is a bacterial infection. The bacteria are usually spread through sex or contact with infected genital fluids (semen or vaginal fluid)." You can get chlamydia through: Unprotected vaginal, anal or oral sex Sharing sex toys that are not washed or covered with a new condom each time they're used Your genitals coming into contact with your partner's genitals – this means you can get chlamydia from someone even if there's no penetration, orgasm or ejaculation Infected semen or vaginal fluid getting into your eye.
