Could this be an allergic reaction to my antibiotic?

I have been taking the antibiotic Bactrim for a little over a week now. I just yesterday started breaking out in an extremely itchy rash over most of my body. Could this be an allergic reaction to the Bactrim?

  • Yep, I'd call your doc. Probably hives. I'm allergic to penicillin and that's what happens to me.
