I was given Keflex around 3 months ago for Hidradenitis. I had an allergic reaction and stopped taking it. I've had hives ever since. Why is that?
Not Keflex: HIves is a particular kind of rash, and rarely lasts more than a few days. And any rash due to cephalexin (Keflex) allergy would not last more than 1-2 weeks after stopping the drug. So whatever the cause of your current rash, it probably isn't hives and cephalexin isn't the cause. If you're taking any other medications, you might be allergic to one of them.

Many options: Antibiotics are in a number of chemical classes. With a severe reaction to Keflex (also called cefazolin), you should avoid antibiotics in the cephalosporin and probably the penicillin class, as there is a higher chance of cross reactivity. Typically, we will give antibiotics in a different chemical class rather than testing. For you, examples may be clindamycin, Ciprofloxacin or vancomycin.See 1 more doctor answer

Why would I suddenly have so many med allergies (hives, etc?) allergic to nsaids, opiates, keflex, and more. All within a couple yrs. Why?
It is uncommon: First you need to describe what kinds of problem you have had with each of the drugs since some may not really be from an allergy. Becoming "allergic" to drugs with unrelated chemical structure in 2 years is also rare. You need to consult an allergist to help you sort this out.
Is it safe to use keflex/cephalexin antibiotics 500mg 3x a day to treat possible mouth infection due to a burn during pregnancy? I'm 17 weeks pregnant
Yes: Antibiotics of the cephalosporin class are generally considered safe during pregnancy if prescribed. However, most burns do not require antibiotic treatment and respond well to just keeping the area clean. A Dentist or doctor can prescribe an oral rinse if needed, but generally just brushing the teeth and rinsing with water twice a day is sufficient to allow healing of a hot food type mouth burnSee 2 more doctor answers

Keflex is fine: It is fine to take Keflex while breastfeeding. Oxycodone is excreted in breast milk and the clinical significance of this to the baby is unknown.
