Septra is an antibiotic combination containing sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim. Septra is typically used to treat ear infections, urinary tract infections, bronchitis, traveler's diarrhea, and Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia.
It is not normally used to treat infections in the mouth.
The cause of the infection will need to be established before an appropriate medication can be prescribed. You should see your dentist for a diagnosis.
