Hi,,Yes you can use keflex
I am not a Doctor.
Treatment of Strep Throat
The cephalosporin antibiotics such as cephalexin (Keflex, Keftabs, Biocef) and cefadroxil (Duricef)are about three times more effective and three times less likely to fail --in eradicating strep than penicillin.
I hope I have been of some help.
Good luck..from a caring individual
