Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Expert:  DR.EHTISHAM replied 6 months ago.

The chances of spread of chlamydia through a skin to skin contact are almost zero. The usual route of spread of chlamydia infection is through vaginal,anal or oral sex .

Can you please explain what kind of contact you had and what are your symptoms ?

Skin to skin frottage - penis to penis rubbing against each other while erect - with a partner who may have chlamydia. What are the chances it could be transmitted this way - by the tips of each penis rubbing together?
Expert:  DR.EHTISHAM replied 6 months ago.

Thanks for sending the details.

Theoretically speaking such a transmission can occur but very rarely but practically such a transmission hardly ever occur. As there is no penetration so to acquire chlamydia this way is highly unlikely. So just relax as it is unlikely to have an infection like Chlamydia this way.

Good luck
