Ceftibuten (Cedax) is an antibiotic in the Cephalosporin Family. Ceftibuten is used to treat respiratory tract, urinary tract and other bacterial infections.
Ceftibuten is rarely used as an acne treatment. Laboratory antibiotic susceptibility testing does indicate that the acne-causing P. acnes bacteria is generally sensitive to Cephalosporin family antibiotics, including Ceftibuten. There is little clinical research and few patient reports about Ceftibuten as a treatment for acne.
