For Mike, my doctor friend

I’m taking Cephalexin (cephalexin monohydrate)- 500 mg/pill, 3 times a day, for 10 days.  The doctor said that it’s one that’s good specifically for skin bacterial infections.  This morning the red patch below the red circle is getting lighter and doesn’t itch as much so that’s better.  My body also feels significantly better this morning.  No aching and no fever.  So I think I’m OK.  (Although I’m still taking my sick day because I already had a sub and I figure it doesn’t hurt to rest.)  But I will definitely call the doctor if I get any worse.  Bacterial infections are really scary!  I’m also trying to be extremely careful with washing my hands, bleaching stuff, etc.  I’ll let you know what the doctor says the bacteria is.
