In brief: Neither actually

If you are talking about a group a strep infection, such as strep throat, an antibiotic in the penicillin family (penicillin, amoxicillin, etc.
) is the preferred treatment. Otherwise a cephalosporin such as Cephalexin (keflex) is a good alternative.

Strep is treated with penicillin,amoxicillin or augmentin.If you are allergic erythromycine or azithromycne.Cpro and Bactrim are not standard of care for strep infection.
