What Side Effects Should I Be Worried About While Taking Cephalexin
Urticaria: Cephalexin is an oral antibiotic, belongs to the class of 'cephalosporin'. People who are allergic to 'penicillin" in general, will have cross sensitivity reaction to cephalosporin as well. The drug reaction can vary from mild urticarial rash to severe anaphylaxis, which will be life a threatening situation. Sometimes cephalosporin can give 'drug induced fever' as well. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Allergenic: Tmp (bactrim, septra, (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) etc.) has a sulfonamide as one component. These are among the most allergy creating drugs known and anyone who is developing an allergy to other classes of drugs, like cephalosporins, has a higher risk of also being allergic to sulfa. Be careful! ...Read more
One of the side effects of cephalexin is it can cause pseudomembranous colitis. If you were to give a percentage, how likely is this to happen?
Cannot: Clostridium difficile colitis occurs when you alter the normal colonic flora with antibiotics and it grows out and produces toxin. Whether this happens depends on whether you were previously colonized with this organism, the strain in your colon and other factors. No specific %s are available. Don't use antibiotics unless absolutely necessary. ...Read more

No Problem..: I would be too. Call the physician, and ask if you can reduce the script by half. Say 500mg. 2 X a day. There is nothing wrong with asking questions when you have concerns. Remember to keep the wound clean and watch for wound improvement. ...Read more

Doctor, I am beyond worried. My 3month old suddenly was oozing yellow sticky pus on one side of his head. The emergency room gave him mupirocin and cephalexin. Is this ok? I can't stop crying. Will my only breast fed baby be ok? Please respond. Please!
Abscess: I am assuming the oozing was from his scalp and not his ear right? So it sounds like your son developed an abscess and it ruptured. The antibiotic and the ointment you were prescribed are absolutely appropriate. I recommend close follow-up with the pediatrician to make sure that all is healing well. Keep the area clean, monitor for increasing redness or swelling.Complete all medicines exactly directed ...Read more
Please can someone help me I have pain under the leftbreast onthe far side its a off and on pain can I take cephalexin?
Wait on cephalexin: There's nothing you're describing that makes me think this is an infection... Which is what you would take Cephalexin for. I would strongly recommend seeing a doctor before taking any antibiotics. When you take antiobitics when you don't need to, you run the risk of unnecessary allergic reactions, yeast infections, and resistant bacteria. Please see your doctor and get a thorough exam. ...Read more
