Hello,

Welcome to just answer,

Chlamydia bacteria can also cause infections in other areas of the body, including the throat i.e pharyngitis (sore throat).


Common symptoms are dry, scratchy throat,Redness, Painful swallowing, Painful Talking, fever similar to other types of sore throat.

Chlamydia throat infections may not cause symptoms sometimes.

A chlamydia throat infection may last longer than a typical sore throat.

can it be past by kissing? what are the odds of catching this infection in your mouth?
Expert:  DR MED MD replied 3 years ago.
Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease that is spread by vaginal and anal intercourse. It is not spread by kissing; however, it has occasionally been spread by oral sex.

Here is some info, let me know if you have questions.

If other person is having chlamydia throat infection then spread can occur by oral contact and oral sex.

it can be transmitted by oral sex? but its not spread by kissing? i'm confused on this. the mouth can pick it up and give it orally back but can not give it by kissing??
Expert:  DR MED MD replied 3 years ago.
Oral sex means mouth-to-penis and penis-to-mouth contact, It is even less likely for transmission to take place from vagina-to-mouth or anus-to-mouth contact.

Expert:  Dr.Hussey replied 3 years ago.
Hello

Simply , you cannot get chlamydia by kissing some one with this disease. Kissing is not a mode or transmission. You can kiss your partener without any fear of transmitting this germ to your partner.
It can be transmitted by oral sex but not by kissing. This is because the bacterial load required for transmission via oral load is insuffiecient to transmit infection. However chlamydia is actively secreted in secretion from penis or vagina and thus oral sex can become a cause of transmission. Even if there is some infection with chlamydia in throat , the secretions in throat and saliva would not contain the bacteria as the bacteria is not secreted in saliva. So kissing cannot transmit infection.

This conversation is open till the time you are satisfied. If you have any further questions, feel free to ask. I will be more than happy to help you out.

Best of luck...Take care.
