Nadifloxacin (Nadixa) is a topical antibiotic in the Quinolone family. Nadifloxacin is used to treat certain types of bacterial skin infections.
Nadifloxacin is occassionally used for the treatment of acne. Clinical research and patient reports suggest that Nadifloxacin can be a very useful acne treatment, particularly when combined with complementary therapies. Laboratory antibiotic susceptibility testing indicates that the acne-causing P. acnes bacterium tends to be sensitive to Nadifloxacin.
Nadifloxacin is not approved for use in all countries (eg. United States). But Nadifloxacin is an exciting new topical treatment for acne that is likely to become more commonly used for acne patients.
