Does Bactrim cause an IB?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, was just wondering if Bactrim causes an initial breakout? If you have taken Bactrim (also called Septra or Sulfamethoxazole) would you please share your experiences and how long it took till it started clearing you?

An IB is an IB. It's not the medicine that causes IBs. It's how the body handles a medicine. Some people may experience an IB, some may not(this is for all acne medications). Bactrim was one of my favorite antibiotics for acne. All the antibiotics I've taken started clearing my acne from the get go. After a week, no new pimples came in, and the active ones started to die down. 1 month in, my face was completely clear and baby smooth. You may or may not get an IB with bactrim.
