Cephalexin + Mononucleosis

I'm 18 years old and about three weeks ago tested positive for mononucleosis. Around the time I started showing mono symptoms (fever, very sore throat) I was on ammoxicillin prescribed by my dermatologist for acne. After I found out I had mono I stopped the ammox but too late - it caused a rash to break out all over my body. My dermatologist wants to put me on oral cephalexin for the acne and I'm wondering if I should take it - is there still a possibility of getting the same rash?

Amoycillin causes a specific rash, nonallergic in nature especially in cases of infectious mononucleosis.As a rule it settles down in a few days. Do consult your doc.
