Pulmonary hypersensitivity allergic reactions that affect the lungs and result in rashes and fever may be caused by nitrofurantoin and sulfasalazine.
These include penicillin, ampicillin, and amoxicillin; sulfisoxazole or sulfamethoxazole; trimethoprim; nitrofurantoin; cephalosporins; or fluoroquinolones.
Trimethoprim and nitrofurantoin are preferred for treating recurrent UTIs in women.
Women and teens with two or more UTIs within a six-month period sometimes are given prophylactic treatment, usually nitrofurantoin or trimethoprim for three to six months.
