For Skin or Soft Tissue Infection "This antibiotic worked fast to clear my mastitis from breastfeeding, and I felt pain relief within a day or two. But oh my god, the side effects were terrible, and I had to deal with them for 10 days! This antibiotic made me extremely depressed, anxious, exhausted, nauseous, and gave me such bad diarrhea. I took my last dose yesterday, and 24 hours later I feel MUCH better. Tl;dr: This drug works well, but the side effects are almost unbearable."

For Skin or Soft Tissue Infection "Keflex didn't work. I had just flown to and arrived in deep rural Mexico. I was taking Keflex (cephalexin) post-mouth surgery and woke with my left cheek, where I had the medical attention swollen up like I had a grapefruit in my mouth. I freaked. I was in rural Mexico with an infection that Keflex did nothing for. I was taken into town and the woman doctor calmly, knowingly prescribed dicloxacillin. Upon beginning to take it the swelling in my cheek began to subside and the infection was gone in a few days."

For Skin or Soft Tissue Infection "Lifelong athlete's foot infection using chlotrimazole 1%. Developed a severe case of cellulitis. After using 500mg dose of dicloxacillin for one year I developed cancer of prostate, bladder, and lymph nodes. Always wondered if any connection."

For Skin or Soft Tissue Infection "I'm allergic to this drug! I went to a clinic for eye inflammation. The doctor gave me this drug. When I took it, it had a side effect, namely a rash, itching all over my face. I think it might be allergic to all penicillins."
