Keflex and BF???

I went into the acute care clinic today bc I was having an allergic reaction to some medication. The stupid doc didnt even ask me if I was BF or no and gave me 3 perscriptions. (One was Benadryl )
Keflex is an anti biotic and although the pharmacist said it was "safe" for BF, I want to make sure its not gonna give me trush or anything like that.
I heard you need to becareful with some antibiotics bc it gives you a yeast infection and then blah blah blah
sooo is keflex ok to take?
TIA

Re: Keflex and BF???

hard to say .... why did they put you on Keflex for an allergic reaction?? Were you already on antibiotics? Is that (antibiotics) what you had a reaction to?
Be careful with the Benedryl, as it can decrease your milk supply. (antihistamine)
Forgot to say .... I've been a nurse for 15 yrs ...

It was the antibiotics I had an allergic reaction to. It was actually Cleocin. IDK the doc was wierd. He said he doesnt think it was an allergic reaction bc I dont have a rash or anything on my "downstairs" Just a swollen hand. He thought it was a bug bite but there was no bite on my hand

Soo he gave me another cream +antibiotics+Benadryl
If I have the new cream (Vandazole) Why would I need the extra antibiotis?!?

Idk this doc is wierd.

I don't have issues with yeast overgrowth myself, even when taking strong antibiotics... BUT, I took keflex and it gave my nursing son a yeast infection

keflex is a strong antibiotic, and it can give way to yeast/fungal overgrowth, so probiotics may be in order
