Common Questions and Answers about Skin rash keflex

skin

my wife had a surgery, and was given ceftriaxone IV even though patient chart said she was allergic to keflex(rash,nausea). Did the hospital make a mistake by administering ceftriaxone even though they had known she was allergic to keflex? She developed severe rash and had an acute renal failure in hospital and had to sit in ICU for 7 days.
After 3 days developeda rash on face, swelling and sensative face skin, took off keflex, pyt on prednisone 4 days, still rash face, milder swelling, really irritated face and senative skin to touch, creams.. Any answers what to do next.
After I posted my last comments, I had a discussion with my daughter who suggested I try Black Soap on my skin to see if there would be any improvement in the rash I had resulting from the Keflex. I lathered the soap and washed everything from head to toe. There was a very mild burning on my skin, however not enought to say ouch. After a few days I noticed that the tiny bumps were not as raised as before. Today, the bumps on my neck are completely gone. The bumps on my face are almost gone.
This was on day 8 of 10 on Bactrim. The doctor switched me to Keflex, and this time, that same day I got another rash all over my body. Then, she gave me a cream call Muciprocin, but i've been using it for over a week and see no improvement, although no rashes. Has this happened to anyone? Are there other antibiotics out there? Is this an allergic reaction, or is my immune system being compromised and therefore allowing other things to happen?
Keflex can cause a blistering rash called Stevens-Johnson syndrome. Google it to find out more about it.
About a year ago, I had a cold sore. I accidentally cut it open on the way to a doctors visit. After the visit, 2 days, I developed Impetigo. I went on a whole slew of different penicillins over the next 6 months to kill off whatever was on my face, which then went to my buttocks. A throat culture then determined "Overgrowth of C. Albicans", but no symptoms were present i.e. thrush, etc except ring-worm in the buttocks area. That resolved mostly after several bouts of diflucan.
Salt water is much better for healing skin. I wouldn't suggest using an anti-fungal cream either...if you do not for sure have a fungal infection, you shouldn't use it. Try not wearing your belt. Even if you have worn your belt for a long time, you can develop sensitivities to metals depending on what you've been eating, the weather, etc.
00pm every evening. The skin begins to itch before much is seen. After rubbing the affected areas the rash becomes visible in the form of very tiny speckled spots and in some areas the rash is in the form of a raised red pimple without the white head or black head to the top. They never erupt. The rash spots never open nor do they hurt. They just itch continuously in the evening and before sleep. In the morning and day the rash rarely itches.
Can anyone help - I have a raised, sore, itchy rash around the front of my neck. Dr said it is a skin infection and so on antibiotics, but each night my eyes swell, my lips are sore and my neck drives me mad with being so itchy.

She was on Keflex for 10 days, Duricef for 10 days and Cipro for 10 days. We have been using Bactroban ointment continuously until this week when we started using Altabax ointment. Still, no improvement. When one spot is almost gone, she will wake up with a new spot. It has been a never ending cycle. She had a negative strep culture. That is the only test they have done. It does not itch or burn.

Good control over your diabetes will give you healthier skin and of course healthier circulation and healthier major organs, too. Other than this, your doctor can probably look at the sores and determine from their appearance what their cause is. He may have to try several different treatments to find one that works best for you.
ABOUT A MONTH AGO I HAD A BLISTER LIKE RASH ON MY ARM AND WAS TOLD IT WAS CELLULITUS AND WAS PUT ON KEFLEX AND HYDROXYZINE AFTER THE 2 ROUND OF THEM BOTH I STILL HAVE THE RASH.

THE ER DR TOOK ME OFF KEFLEX AND PUT ME ON DOXYCYCLINE 100MG 2 TIMES A DAY AND STILL ON THE OTHER MED AND ALSO A CREAM BETAMETHASONE 2 TIMES A DAY.
and she thought it may be Cellulitis, although she was not sure. I was treated with Keflex and the rash seemed to slowly dissapear. However, the rash does not seem to be entirely gone. Although it is fine when I am sitting around during the day, when I exercise or take a shower, the redness on the back of my leg comes back. (Clarification, rash is an even red, and is not bumpy. It looks like a suburn. Rash was NOT hot, no fever or malaise, otherwise healthy 28 year old female.
I am having a serious problem with a rash that has turned into a wound like skin problem. It started Sunday a week ago. On Saturday I went swimming, took a spa, and steam, came home and worked for 4 hours, showered and went dancing. The next Sunday night I started to develop a rash on my scrotum. The rash looked like red dots and prickley to the touch. Went to the doctor on Monday, proscribed Nizoral powder. Got more uncomfortable and prickley feeling when clothes hit skin.
My doctor says it is a boil and is treating it with Keflex. I have been taking it for 5 days and see a very small difference. I am also getting red bumps with a white head all over my nose and cheeks. My skin is very tender and raw. I do not beleive it is just a boil i feel there is something else going on. I am 35 years old female and i am ANA positive but have no joint pains or other symptomes of lupus. Is it possible that i am suffering from the lupus rash (butterfly mask) ?

My main concerns are obviously the potential that if the TB test could have resulted in a bacterial infection, could their also have been another pathogen present, namely HIV, which in turn caused the rash and tender neck node. I haven't had a rash since I was a kid and I am a little freaked out.
4 yr old lab/shepard mix with a longstanding dark, like black area in his groin betw legs and along belly. Vet tried keflex by mouth for 2 weeks also gentamycin spray to be applied 2-3 times daily. nothing has worked. Dog does not scratch or seem bothered by these darkened areas. they did do scrapings but found nothing. this started after bathing at a chain pet store back in the winter. Have had alot of dogs never saw anything like this.....
Are you on antibiotics? Are you using chlorhexidine gluconate soap to cleanse your skin? The rash is likely a reaction to a specific injection, soap, bra, something new and probably a medrol dose pak will clear it up. Good luck.
hi i have a question, ive heard that antibiotics kill off the good bacteria, since may of this year i have been on keflex Twice, Cipro Twice, Doxycycline Twice, Bactrim Twice, Azthromycin Twice and have 3 rocephin shots. now thats alot of antibiotics, and i have noticed that i have some intertrigo yeast, under my stomach and in my crotch and scrotum area. is the antibiotics why?
A swollen pink rash popped up on her right heel (the rash appeared to be under the skin, cottage cheese bumpy in appearance). I took her to a naturopath and an MD and neither knew what it was but said it looked like a viral infection and it would soon pass. Well 2 days later her fingertips blistered and popped and the skin peeled away. Then the rash spread to her other heel and she has some blistering on her left toes. What has me so concerned is the itchiness it is causing.
*i have VERY sensitive skin and am use to having bumps develop or eczema flare ups if something irritates my skin* Well, the once harmless rash jumped to my face and neck last night while out with my husband. I attributed this to hives because i was beyond stressed out about who knows what... Up until 4 weeks post pardom I was healing quite well and having no problems. This just came out of nowhere..
Was the rash cured by the steroid? My husband got the H1N1 shot and 9 days later developed a skin rash - also red, blotchy, warm and sore. The doctor told him to take Reactin, which has done nothing to help the rash. The rash has in fact spread. It is not an allergic reaction to food or soaps - nothing new has been introduced into his diet.
We took her back to the doctors on Thursday and they started her on Keflex and Benadryl cream. Now the rash in some places is taking on a purplish look and she now has the rash on her left palm of her hand which is really itchy but she cries when she scratches it saying it really hurts. We are at a complete loss here with her and don't know what to do, currently we are using Baby Aveeno Lotion along with Benedryl cream, Keflex 4 times a day, Claritin, prednisone is done.
thought I had shingles, but no rash, just very painful. didn't relize how much clothes rub on your skin. I have been having laser treatments from my chiropractor and they seem to be helping. Also taking 2000mg vit C 4x a day and Natrual B along with a good natural multiple vitamin. Resting after work as much as possible. The front area has been very ichy and then painful, the iching just started on the 3rd week. The back area is much better. Hoping it dosen't last much longer.
I am 45 years old, Male, Caucasian... I just recently noticed that I have a rash that runs along the back of my ear in the crease where my ear attaches to my head. It is about 1 inch long and gets raw then scabs over. I have been putting cortisone on it. It appears to help for a while, but then dries up, scabs and then gets raw again. It does not itch and that is the only place where it appears. Any ideas?
10 Weeks ago I scraped my forearm on the side of a table. The scrape barely broke the skin and did not bleed. A few weeks later I noticed it was getting slightly scaly, and seemingly healing incorrectly, though it didn't bother me so I ignored it and went on a European vacation for a few weeks. Upon returning home, the lesion had become quite bad and was beginning to exhibit signs of what appeared to be ring worm (a very pronounced ring around the original scrape which was now long healed).
