So, a few weeks ago I went to the gyn for this gross bump on my cooter. Well, it's sort of on my cooter. Between leg and cooter. Anyway, she said it's a boil, and seems infected probably, so she prescribed me Keflex. I just now got around to picking it up, cos I thought it was getting better, and it seems to have come back with a vengeance and is hurting. So, here are my three Keflex questions. First, the bottle is for 250 mg, and says to take it four times daily, for seven days. Doesn't that seem like an awful lot? Or is that the normal dosage?
Secondly, the gyn told me it won't make my birth control ineffective, which seems contrary to everything I have heard. True or false?
Third, I seem to have an infected thumb. I did this to myself before, I need to stop biting my nails. Now my thumb is all red and hurts REALLY bad. Will the Keflex perhaps somehow also help with this?
