    I have a staph infection and am currently taking bactrim for it. Is it safe to have sex after being on the antibiotics for a week? The wound is under my arm and has opened to drain. I have been taking the antibiotic for a couple of days now. If the wound is not draining anymore in the next few days and I continue taking the antibiotics, will it be safe to have sex?
