This is a double-blind, randomized controlled trial at an urban pediatric emergency department. Sample size (162) was based on a threshold equivalence of 7% (α = 0.05, power = 80%). Inclusion criteria were: non-toxic, immunocompetent, 3 months to 18 years old, English-speaking patients with clinical or ultrasound identified skin abscesses who were not on antibiotics. Patients were block randomized to receive placebo or trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole following incision and drainage. Follow-up was a call at 2-3 days & a repeat visit or call at 10-14 days. Treatment failure was defined as: persistent erythema, tenderness, and/or draining lesions. New lesion was defined as: primary resolution with development of new lesion (furuncle, carbuncle or abscess) at a different location. Compliance was evaluated by the return of the study medication or by patient report.

A pyrimidine inhibitor of dihydrofolate reductase, it is an antibacterial related to PYRIMETHAMINE. The interference with folic acid metabolism may cause a depression of hematopoiesis. It is potentiated by SULFONAMIDES and the TRIMETHOPRIM-SULFAMETHOXAZOLE COMBINATION is the form most often used. It is sometimes used alone as an antimalarial. TRIMETHOPRIM RESISTANCE has been reported.
Skin diseases caused by bacteria, fungi, parasites, or viruses.
This drug combination has proved to be an effective therapeutic agent with broad-spectrum antibacterial activity against both gram-positive and gram-negative organisms. It is effective in the treatment of many infections, including PNEUMOCYSTIS PNEUMONIA in AIDS.
