This is Dr. David

I am another expert here

it sounds like your sore throat got worse on Sunday with a lot of coughing and is better by Monday.

this does not sound like a drug reaction to Bactrium.

it sounds more like a short temporary viral infection causing viral pharyngitis or from acid reflux.

you should talk to your doctor about your sore throat.

but I bet your doctor will tell you to continue to take your bactrium antibiotic.

let me know if you have other questions.

if done for now, please leave positive rating above the chat box so I can get credit for helping you today

we only get credit for helping clients after positive feedback

you can always reach me with "a question for Dr. David" in the medicine or oncology categories if you have any other questions

dr Phil said I should stop taking it because it should not be causing a sore throat. then dr David said keep taking it. wow I'm confused, but I continued the med. still feels sore
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years ago

do you have a history of acid reflux?

acid reflux can cause sore throat.

bactrim can also upset your stomach and cause acid reflux.

best to continue the antibiotic

and also call your doctor to tell them about your sore throat symptoms.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
