Hello, Tina. Thanks for your question. I need some additional information.

1) When was the Keflex started?
2) How often is it being given?
3) Has a skin scrape been performed?
4) Do you have a current picture of her skin so that I can see what you're seeing?
5) Are you or your family having any itching, particularly around underwear and bra lines?
