I was prescribed Bactrim 800 for a urinary infection and then had intense itching on the upper part and halfway down my penis, I stopped taking it on the fourth day.
This "urinary infection" was diagnosed as part of my annual physical when the urine sample was tested - there were no symptoms, pain, etc at the time...
I had comprehensive blood tests for any communicable diseases (it would be very difficult to have gotten any since I've been celibate for over a year) which all came back fine.
All blood work was normal.
It's now a week later and my penis has shed skin on the head and lower rim (where it meets foreskin) a few times now.
I can tell it's gradually getting back to normal, but this is ridiculous!
The only way I've made it thru the day at work is to apply neomycin & Pain Relieving Ointment for Boils (Wallgreens) that deadens the pain.
I'm 52, borderline diabetic - take metaformin, synthroid & lisonipril only.
Never again will I take Bactrim - I feel like getting a bracelet or something that says highly allergic to Bactrim or Sulfer drugs...
