I started taking bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and noticed the next day that i had a breakout of bumps on my forehead. They look like pimples, but are not. Side effect?

In brief: Rash

Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) can cause diffuse body rash, body itch but simple pimples on forehead is probably not due to it , but check a doctor if rash worsens.
