Answer:  The rash after the antibiotics may have nothing to do with Cladribine. It sounds as if you had what is called “Stevens-Johnson syndrome” which is an uncommon hypersensitivity (allergic) reaction to bactrim (but well described). It also looks like you are allergic to doxycyline. Topical steroid cream is fine and there is no problem taking it, but the rash will also likely disappear on its own after stopping the antibiotic. You may want to see an allergy specialist to see what antibiotics you are allergic to. As always, you should consult with your primary physician.
