Had a reaction to a penicilin based medication which was a strong version of the penicillin, now have been told to take Keflex, Dr knows my situation. If not advisable to take what would be good for upper respiratory infection I have had for 5 days, not on the chest.
Keflex is in a class called cephalosporin. While cross allergies happen there is a 5-10% chance you will also be allergic to it. Your Dr felt this was the antibiotic needed for your condition. Take it as directed and notify your Dr immediately if you have itching, swelling or rash. Good luck
