Cefradine

Cefradine is an antibiotic in the Cephalosporin Family. Cefradine is used to treat respiratory tract, urinary tract and skin infections. Note: Cefradine is not approved for human use in all countries.

Cefradine is rarely used as an acne treatment. Laboratory antibiotic susceptibility testing does show that the acne-causing P. acnes bacteria is generally sensitive to Cephalosporin antibiotics, including Cefradine. However, there is minimal clinical research into the use of Cefradine as a treatment for acne.
