Reviews for Cephalexin to treat Acne
Keflex (cephalexin): "I have been getting these painful boils under my arm since I was 15-16. Now I'm 21. Like a month after I had my baby, my face broke out really, really bad. Cephalexin(Keflex) cleared it right up. I don't get boils any more."

Keflex (cephalexin): "This was and continues to be the best, long term option for me. I had very little side effects ... slight headache at first but it went away after a few days."

Keflex (cephalexin): "After taking doxycycline for a while, my body became resistant to it, so my dermatologist switched me to Keflex for acne. I think I had at least five bowel movements the first day. Eventually, my digestive system became somewhat regular, but then I started getting headaches on a regular basis. It cleared up my acne somewhat, but it was definitely not worth all the side effects. "
