    I'm so sorry this happened to you! Bactrim is a sulfa-class drug. Sulfa reactions are not all that unusual, and skin reactions are the most common adverse side-effect. Here's a site that talks about what you describe: http://adam.about.com/encycloped - 76% more...

    I had the same reaction to Bactrim. I was sick with the "flu" for a week. I had all the symptoms of the flu. The Dr. said it was the flu. When I figured out it was possibly the Bactrim, I stopped taking it and immediately started to feel better.
