This antibiotic is used to treat a variety of infections in pediatrics, most commonly skin infections or urinary tract infections.
Ingredients: An antibiotic from the cephalosporin family called cephalexin.
How to use:
Dosage will be determined by the attending physician depending on the site of infection and the child’s weight. The daily dosage will always be divided three times a day. The maximum dose is 500 mg per dose three times a day (and in rare severe cases up to 1000mg three times a day).
Relatively speaking, it is a narrow-spectrum antibiotic that covers mainly bacteria that are found on the skin and cause skin infections and some of the bacteria causing urinary tract infections.
Mild abdominal pain and soft stools. With severe sensitivity to penicillin antibiotics, do not use this antibiotic either.
Another word from the doctor:
A very important and useful antibiotic in pediatrics – used as a first line in certain infections, especially skin infections or urinary tract infections.
