only if this infection is bacterial or protozoal in nature. you may also find more under its generic name Co-trimoxazole. but your local pharmacy can usually have access to more in depth information than the general public.

I'm not a doctor, but I used to take bactrim for acne and was told by the doctor that even though it is an antibiotic, it will not treat things as far as viral infections and colds. Other than that info that came from my doctor, I don't know.
