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
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.
Metronidazole or Fluconazole are in no way used to treat a bacteria infection. These medications treat fungal infections like vaginal yeast infections. The opposite of a yeast infection is a bacteria infections which requires an antibiotic. The above two mentioned drugs are not antibiotics.
I don't know if (cephalexin) generic for (keflex) would work for a bacteria infection. If it was prescribed to you by your doctor then he/she must know it will treat the bacteria infection... I haven't had one since "2011" but when I did have bacteria infections my OBGYN always prescribed me (FLAGYL) I was prescribed to take it 3x a day for 7 days bye the 2nd day i didn't have no discharge or fishy smell... there was a few times I took 3 (FLAGYL) at once & that's all I needed all my symptoms was gone & didn't come back until i contracted another one... (FLAGYL) is the best a number 1 antibiotic for a bacteria infection.. I wouldn't recommend no other antibiotic for a bacteria infection
