i steped on a nail can i take cephalexin to kill any infection that would come from that nail going in and out?
If you already have the signs and symptoms of bacterial infection like fever, swelling on the limb or toes, you may take antibiotics like cephalexin. Antibiotics can cause allergies. Make sure that you are not allergic to it. Until then, keep the area clean with soap and water. Visit also the emergency room for further treatment/
