In sorry, I figured you might have some reasons to not do this. I have chronic granulomatous disease and am prone to cellulitus/impentego. It causes me to be allergic to seafood, metal, and latex. I have dry shaved two times in two years, and once dealt with cellulitus into impentego for a long time. This year I only delt with the cellulitus part. The low dose aspirin keeps the blood from clotting, which is where the danger of death the other posting person mentioned comes from. the bactrim is the drug that gets into the problem. What do they give you instead of bactrim for the same type of bacteria. That is what you need to find out. In the hospital there is a formulary drug use supply of medicine. You must find out what could possibly be replace and find the faciliy who is willing to administer it. Some facilities go by cost effectiveness, but do purchace other items.
