Cefixime (Suprax) is an antibiotic in the Cephalosporin family. Cefixime is commonly used to treat infections of the respiratory tract as well as the ear and urinary tract.
Cefixime is rarely used as an acne treatment. There is little clinical research about Cefixime as a treatment for acne and their are few patient reports. Laboratory research does indicate that the acne causing P. acnes bacteria is generally susceptible to Cephalosporin antibiotics, including Cefixime.
