    I suffered for 11 days with a blister like sore. My doctor prescribed bactrim nasal ointment. I put a small amount on my little finger and applied it to the sore. Within a few minutes I could tell the inflammation and pain were a lot better. The sore is still there but really it's not as painful.

    My 5 year old son had impetigo in one of his nostrils and was prescribed this to be taken for a week. He started with some "tummy pain" the first few days, then experienced bouts of severe abdominal cramping and pain the days following, plus panic attacks.

    This is thee most toxic ointment I have ever used causing nausea, headache, extreme burning of throat and esophagus, and uncontrollable shivering from being extremely cold. I will make sure that everyone I know does not use this. There are safer alternative remedies that can be used. When is the medical community going to wake up to how they are hurting us.

    I developed a serious bacterial infection and this drug was one of the many drugs prescribed to me. The side effects were mild and the drug was easy to administer. Upon taking the medicine I would chew a piece of gum to keep me from gagging or chocking on the awful taste.

    I have recurrent nose infection. I have not filled this Rx as it calls for mixing the ointment with water and salt and irragating your nose. Too complicated and ointment and water does not mix. Any suggestions.
