I had impetigo on the sides of my mouth and a staph infection at the base of my neck, both very nasty and painful. My dr. threw me on two (generic)Bactrim a day for 10 days and also prescribed Altabax ointment to rub on the lesions. Both worked wonders and the sored healed in a couple days!

Comment:
I was prescribed Bactrim as a precaution against skin infection due to a fall; my knee was badly scraped and my Derm. did not want to take chances. I will NEVER it again: nausea, headaches and worse, it messed up my menstrual cycle. I was fine before - always the proverbial "clockwork" and now, it's goofy. NEVER AGAIN!!
