Hi
Welcome to the forum!
You need to take an allergy test—either skin, RAST or Elisa to know what you are allergic to. You can be tested for all antibiotics available to know what you are allergic to and what is safe for you.
Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

I have the exact same condition right now. I was put on bactrim to treat a staff infection and since I started taking the medicine I developed a severe rash on my penis. I was perscribed bactrim ds 800/160 tablets to take two, two times a day. Should I stop taking the bactrim and call my doctor? Also is there anything I can use to make the rash better or just more bearable until it heals. Thank you.

I have the same allergy. a skin specialist advised me to take a
PRIC TEST(an allergy test). i had done it. that result help me to avoid the drugs which are so dangerous to me. when ever your penis start iching, then you must sallow two pills,which is anty allergic. The name of pills are, Betnesol forte(Betamethasone sodium phosphate tablet IP 1 mg) and
Atarax 10 mg(Hydroxyzine Hydrochloride tablet). two times a day. and also use [Flutibact skin ointment (Fluticasone Propionate and Mupirocin ointment on penis)] three times a day. you must be all right in a day.

I have also experienced a similar problem sometime earlier this year. But in my case, in addition to the rash on the penis I also developed an inflammation my mouth, which lasted for about a week. But it wasn't the first time I experienced the inflammation in my mouth...first I thought I was allergic to Bactrum specifically and as a result I subsequently avoided taking bactrum, but when earlier this year, as I mentioned, I also developed a rash on the penis, I became really worried and somebody suggested that I might be allergic to penicillin. I suppose I should also go for an allergy test
