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