Taking Cephalexin for paronychia,no condoms w husband bc I've been on Nexplanon since last August.Should I be worried it can make it less effective?
On Cephalexin because of infection. Will this lessen the effectiveness of my birth control? Had unprotected sex. Should I be worried?
Should be ok: The current thinking is that except for rifampin, other commonly-used antibiotics do not alter the effectiveness of birth control pills. This is also presuming a person is not sick with vomiting or diarrhea, or some other condition that decreases the absorption of a swallowed birth control pill.

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!

I have a swollen lymph node under jaw and I get these weird clear bubbles under my tongue after I eat. Doctor prescribed keflex. Should I be worried?
May not be node: When one feels a lump in the submaxillary area the question is it related to an enlarged lymph gland or swollen submaxillary salivary gland.

X ray of floor mouth will show if a stone is present in the duct. ...Read more
