I was diagnosed with strep throat and an antibiotic was called in for me. I currently have no insurance, and don't really have money to spare. (I'm allergic to amoxicillin) I do have a full dose of Bactrim I was recently given but never took. Will that treat the strep throat?
Will Bactrim treat strep throat??

We NEVER use and do not recommend Bactrim or fluoroquinolones for the treatment of strep throat infection as they do not eradicate the organism and may further put pressure of drug resistance on the antibiotic. ... Oral Penicillin V is the medicine of choice that we use to treat strep throat infection.
From what I just looked up bacterium treats pneumonia and can treat other types of infection. My guess would be yes it will clear up strep throat.
