Most of the time when there is a vaginal infection, they rx a medicated vaginal gel called metrogel for it. I think it might depend on which infection you have. If you have been diagnosed with something called Bacterial vaginosis, then the cephalexin is probably not going to work. They also use cleocin cream for BV. There is an excellent article on bv at vaginosis.com and Dr. James Christian explains what can happen. If you do get prescribed metrogel or cleocin cream, remember to ask for at least 2 doses of diflucan tablets ( oral) so that you won't get a yeast infection from the antibiotic get.
