I've been taking bactrim for a while, so I'm not thinking allergy, but I have a couple of sores on my gums.

2 of my kids have bad colds right now and I may just be getting their cold. Boo!

I know I'm suppose to watch for mouth sores with bactrim.

At what point should I consider this something serious.

Could be the cold my kids have coming on or bactrim. I just don't want to say it's nothing and end up in a worse situation.

Any thoughts?

Read closely and carefully the symptoms of Stephens-Johnson syndrome on this page:

And, here is what a lyme doctor advises:

Perhaps you can wait and see for a bit. But, if you get any more sores or any fever or any of the other symptoms, then jump on it and stop Bactrim, call your doc, or visit an ER.

Thanks TF. I only have 1 sore on my gums. Nothing on my lips/mouth, no fever or rash. I think the sore on my gums is starting to go away, so I think I'm going to ride it out another day and if I see any other signs, stop... thank you!

I would STOP Bactrim right now. Go see an allergist or a dermatologist. I developed an allergy after taking it for months no problem.

My first sign was a small rash on my arm. It stayed that way - small rash - for a while. I did not connect it to Bactrim because it was just a little rash and I'd been on bactrim for so long w/o problems. My LLMD did not connect it to Bactrim either.

Eventually, the reaction got much worse. I had full body hives with itching and burning and tingling. Thankfully I did not have an anaphylactic reaction, but I could have.

Parts of the rash stuck around for weeks or months. When I finally got to a derm, he took one look at it and said, "oh yes, that's a bactrim rash." Bactrim is notorious for rashes. With a skin sore, that seems related enough that I'd want to get it checked out.
