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.
