I recently broke my ankle,and had a scratch that got infected with Cellulitis,after taking antibiotics now for a week and a half,I am constantly hot and sweat throughout the day,but at night im drenched.It is summer and its pretty warm and i have had night sweats before in times of heat but not like this.My doc says I am fighting the cellulitis.I am just wondering if the antibiotics are the culprit.I am taking Bactrim for my condition.Its really very unpleasant and because of it I am exhasted because i wake up many times a night.I looked all over the internet and couldnt find one source that said bactrim caused sweating,My infection is all but completely gone so I dont really think its my body fighting off the infection.Anyone have any thoughts?

  • Maybe the Bactrim isn't completely working and you have some strep there, and are re-infecting yourself. I hope this is not it.

  • Get some blood cultures done. You might need a different antibiotic.

  • Get on amoxicillin or different kind of broad spectrum antibiotic. Amoxicillin and penicillin did wonders for me...but everytime I took Bactrim I was sick! I mean SICK. I was pukey, tired, I felt worse than before I took them. It did, however, clear up the infection...but if it gets really bad, just go ahead and switch- unless you are almost done with your current set.Some people are just allergic to sulfur drugs. Get that checked out.

  • Cellulitis usually responds quickly to antibiotics. However, if the infection is more widespread, or if you're having a slow recovery on oral antibiotics, you may need the treatment with antibiotics given intravenously or by injection.Antibiotics used commonly are penicillin, amoxicillin, dicloxacillin, cephalexin, cefuroxime or erythromycin. Clindamycin, doxycycline are also effective and are alternative antibiotics in persons with penicillin or cephalosporin allergy.The usual intravenous antibiotics used are penicillin-based antibiotics (e.g. penicillin G or flucloxacillin) or cephalosporins (e.g. cefotaxime).
