Added 20 Feb 2012:
I did go and th doc said it wasn't a allergic reaction. It was an movement of the mrsa. He also prescribed me another antibiotic. Now the mrsa is draining in my mouth. Should I take or put something on it to stop it from draining and me swallowing it. Or is it ok if I do?
It sounds as though you are experiencing a side effect of Septra called stomatitis (inflammation of the mucous lining of any of the structures in the mouth, which may involve the cheeks, gums, tongue, lips, and roof or floor of the mouth).
I would see your doctor as soon as you can - you will probably need to change to a different antibiotic.
