My daughter is taking cephalexin and she doesnt seem to be getting better, her throat is worse and I think she might have strep throat. Will cephalexin work to treat strep throat?

Yes, cephalexin should help to treat strep throat. How long has she been on it? It may take a bit of time to resolve. If she still has symptoms after the course of antibiotic is finished then please see the doctor. They might actually give another course of the same antibiotic or give another antibiotic, depending on the response.
