Antibiotics?

So long story kind of short, on our belated honeymoon in Costa Rica last week,  my husband and I were snorkeling and were run over by a driver in a motor boat that wasn't paying attention, and my right arm and hand were hit by the propeller.  I ended up with stiches in my thumb, done in Costa Rica.  The doctor I saw, in the states, prescribed me Keflex for antibiotics.  The OB said it was a "Class B" drug, so it should be fine.  Can anyone ease my concern with taking this?  I may just be paranoid.

    Ok, thank you.  That makes me feel alot better.  This is why I shouldn't research things on the internet, it freaks me out too much :)

    Wow! I'm glad you weren't hurt worse.  Is your husband ok?  Anyway, I wouldn't hesitate to take those antibiotics.

    Thank you.  Yeah we consider ourselves very fortunate.  He only had some bruising and swelling.  Which is good, because now he can take care of me :)

    I was on a different antibiotic and was told by my pharmacist that class B is pretty much the safest rating they can have. There are only 2-3 on the A list and to not worry. Hope you get to feeling better!

    Yikes- what a scary accident!  I took keflex while pregnant with DS1, no issues for either of us.  The risk of infection to both you and baby definitely out-weigh any small possible risks of the med.

    Glad you and DH are doing ok!

    If it is Class B you should be OK to take it. I definitely understand your concern though but it seems pretty necessary. You don't want an infection.

    If your OB said it was safe... why are you asking a bunch of people on a website who have no medical training?
