I was what I assume was bitten by a spider, however I've been told it looks like staph. My Dr. Did not even look at the wound. He just prescribed keflex. Will this help if it is staph? I'm scared, the wound is dime size and the infection is obviously still in it. Thank you for any input. Donna
Cephalexin is a first generation cephalosporin. It has good activity against a wide spectrum of Gram-positive bacteria including staphylococci and penicillinase-producing staphylococci.
It is not active against methicillin-resistant staphylococci (MRSA).
Keflex is often used to treat skin infections.
