I've developed rash, red swollen spots, and genital pruritis. Stopped taking pills, but reaction sysptoms still persist. Is there something I can take or do to counter the effects of cephalexin and possibly speed up recovery?
Your best bet is an antihistamine. Try the OTC Benedryl or ask your Dr for something stronger but generally the diphenhydramine (Benedryl) should work well. There are some stronger Rx strength antihistamine like drugs-hydroxyzine (Vistaril or Atarax) works well for itching. If the antihistamine type drugs do not work you may need a steroid for a short bit. Good Luck and hope you are better soon!
