I'm prescribed Bactrim and cephalexin to take together for a skin infection. I'm in pain, so can I take either Advil or Tylenol (acetaminophen) for the pain?

Pain relief. As long as you don't have an allergy, they are both fine for pain control. Just note that Advil will actually help with swelling and inflammation which the Tylenol (acetaminophen) will not.
Should be fine. If the pain persists beyond a few days while on the antibiotics, a re evaluation with your physician would be advised.

Currently on Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and Cephalexin for a skin infection. Added Advil for pain but it still hurts too much. Anything stronger I can take?

Assess for abscess. Though other pain meds are available, if you just started the regimen, then you may experiencing increasing pain the day after- it's called the "antibiotic effect". This pain will decrease over the course of treatment. Otherwise, if the infected skin is warm, red, very tender, swollen and boggy/fluctuant, then it may be an abscess- if so, see your prescribing doctor for re-evaluation. Read more...
