I get vaginal bacteria infections quite often and cannot get into see my doctor for a few days and i cannot wait that long. my mom has cephalexin and has not used it. it says it treats bacterial infections but am not sure if that includes vaginal infections

I honestly don't think Cephalexin will help you, you need something like Metronidazole or Fluconazole.

Yes you can use cephalexin since i have pus like lesion from time to time in my vagina. I took cephalexin as prescribed by my doctor for 10 days. But you have to visit your obgyne since you cannot use that med again if the infection recur.She will prescribed another antibiotic.

u can take cephalexin for vaginal bacterial infection. as it is clinical indicated for urinary tract infections.
But Fluconazole is most frequntly prescribed for vaginal infections.

Even though this is an old question, the two people who indicated that Fluconozole be used for a bacterial infection need to be aware that Fluconozole is for FUNGAL infections only. The question was in regards to BACTERIAL infections.
