In brief: Try other antibiotic

There are plenty of other antibiotics out there either for an acute infection or prophylaxis if needed.
Discuss this with your dr. Alternatives include amoxicillin, augmentin, keflex, cipro, (ciprofloxacin) Nitrofurantoin etc. Common allergic component of Bactrim is sulfamethoxizole. Trimethoprim, the other component of bactrim, is suitable for some patients.
