Cases of fixed drug eruption due to trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole combination are reported. In these cases the oral mucous membranes were affected. Fixed drug eruption is a distinct entity characterized by the development of circular erythematous lesions which over a period of time becomes violaceous. Sulfamethoxazole is probably the main cause of this drug eruption but there are some reports that trimethoprim itself can cause them too.
