Dr. Moser. I was diagnosed with a staph infection under my left arm which had the Lymph Nodes extremely swollen. I have been prescribed Bactrim. After 2 days of Bactrim the BOIL began draining. After about 4 days my sense of smell has gone thru the roof. Not only are the smells a hundred times stronger but they are also nauseating. I am now on my 5th day of Bactrim and the BOIL is still draining. It is like a small faucet stream. And the sense of smell is getting worse. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thank You.....View Thread
