My son got poision ivy or poision oak on his arm, and a week later developed into a skin infection. He has noticed a few more sections on him pop up that are inflamed. He hates to take it because he feels like the cephalex is causing it to flare and itch quite bad. Can this medication cause his inflamed areas to feel itchier and if so why?
I dought very much that it is the cephalexin You can also use cream to help with the itching like hydrocortisone cream now over the counter..I am guessing but I think your son is transfering the Oil that is in the rash if you scrach and then scrach another place you can break out there also the close he was wearing when he got into it should be washed all by itself to help Chuck1957 If any dought call the doctor monday and let them know what is going on..
