Bactrim is sulfa, and if you are not allergic to the rim, go ahead and take it. If you have any swelling of tongue or throat, this is a sign of allergy, do NOT take any more. Warm salty water rinses, like Kaismama said, will be helpful, even peroxide, but it will foam wuite a bit, just a warning. There is mouth rinse called Biotene, it is for dry mouth, does NOT have alcohol, but helps with any sort of mouth irritation, it is in drug stores and mass retail stores, along with mouthwashes or toothpastes, and it works really well. Alternate the warm salty water swishes with the Biotene, and hope you feel better soon. Patti

I think you are ok to take this antibioitic, but have to disagree about the warm salt water rinses. My dentist says to never rinse with salt water after having a tooth pulled. It can cause you to have what is called a dry socket. Please call your dentist first thing in the morning...
