No: The symptoms you describe are certainly consistent with an allergic reaction to cephalexin, but should be discussed in detail with your doctor. If this is determined to be an allergic reaction, you should avoid all members of the cephalosporin class of antibiotics, and probably the penicillins as well. Clindamycin belongs to a different class; allergy to cephalosporins doesn't put you at risk. ...Read more

No fever...: A yeast infection can certainly cause burning, itching, red and hot skin. But it doesn't make you feverish. There may be some other reason you are feverish. I almost hate to mention it, but an initial herpes outbreak can give give you all the symptoms you mentioned including fever. It also has tiny skin ulcerations. Best wishes! ...Read more

Why do I get an itchy red flushing rash when I get hot or am in a hot environment for even short (less than 30) periods of time. What could cause this?? Allergy meds (Benadryl and Vistaril) stop the itching but I still have red and hot skin for hours

Where?: If the rash is confined to your face or neck, it may be from rosacea. If it is generalized, then cholinergic urticaria ( when small hives develop after activities which leads to an increase in core body temperature) would be the likely cause. Try doubling up your antihistamine to see if it works any better. See allergist if problem remains bothersome. ...Read more

How do I get rid of red, hot splotches on my skin from heat (sun, shower, stress, sweaters)? Why so much flush? Do I need Antihistamine, Vasodilator?

If you were burned: by the sun, nothing will rid the skin of its burned color/ pain until the skin changes itself over. Which should happen every 2-3 days. Until then, you have to live with the burned skin. ...Read more
