Why am I experiencing pain and redness in the eyes after taking Bactrim?
Possibly due to an allergic cause.
Thanks for your query.
Bactrim is a supha drug and some people may have allergies to it. The eyes being bloodshot could be an allergic manifestation and thus could be related to Bactrim.
However, the redness of the eyes along with the eyes hurting could also occur due to an independent allergic eye irritation or could be associated with conjunctivitis.
I would insist you to get it evaluated. Treatment with antibiotic drops or antiallergic medication should take care of the issue.
Hope I answered your query.
