Was already on Cephalexin (500 mg twice/day). Dr. prescribed Ketoconazole for fungal skin infection. Didn't fill prescription right away, so don't remember if doctor said to stop the Cephalexin while taking Ketoconazole or if it's okay.

Yes, it's fine to take cephalexin and ketoconazole (take orally or use topically) together. There are no known interactions between the medicines. However it does not mean that no interactions exist so if you do experience any odd symptoms please see your doctor.
