Does the drug Sulfamethoxazole / trimethoprim treat acne i just got it for my acne?

Acne sulfa

Acne
The drug Sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim would be able to treat acne but except in unusual cases it is not a good drug to treat acne. The main reason is that there are many other safer medications to use for long term treatment , particularly members of the tetracycline family. Rarely a person can have an adverse reaction to Sulfa drugs that can be very severe. I have seen 4 people die from it.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

Can you drink milk while taking sulfameth trimethoprim for acne?

Yes

Baby_acne
There are better antibiotics for acne; especially, antibiotics should never be sole therapy. I see that you also have scarring. This should not be happening to you. Get with a physician who knows how to treat it effectively; if scarring has begun, you should consider accepting isotretinoin if it is offered to you.
