Could my doctor prescribe me another medication other than bactrim, so that I may enjoy the sun.
Response from Dr. Young
Thank you for your post.
Trimethoprim/sulfa can make some persons sensitive to the sun- not all. If your taking Bactrim, you can go out in the sun, just make sure that you initially limit your time, consider wearing sunscreen.
