Detailed Answer:
Hi Mam,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic .

Efficiency of ciproxin and keflex for cellulitis are to some extent similar only. There won't be gross change in the effect and response.

Since your cellulitis is responding to ciproxin and dalacin then no need to worry. Antibiotics are changed only if the cellulitis is not reducing or increasing inspite of being on antibiotic.

Hope I have answered your query . If any further queries are there I would love to help.
