A few weeks ago I was diagnosed with Group B strep. I received a Rocephin shot and a 10 day regimen of amoxicillin. Symptoms are returning. I am NOT pregnant but I have diabetes. I do not have the money to return to the doctor but I have a prescription of Bactrim. Can I take Bactrim for this bacteria.

I have limited knowledge on the subject but I do know that it Group B Strep can vary in severity. The target age range for this particular issue is 60-65+ being the most infected. Group B Strep is found more commonly with people that have other health conditions such as diabetes. The bacteria from the organism can spread to other parts of the body and if not treated and can cause complications from the spread of bacteria to other parts of the body and I am sorry to say in extreme cases this includes death. Managing your health successful with diabetes with careful consideration to glucose levels and losing weight if you suffer from obesity will aid and support recovery. It is normally treated with penicillin.
