Ceftin also known as Cefuroxime is a drug from a class of medications called Cephalosporin antibiotics with similar chemical composition as Penicillin. Commonly, it treats a wide variety of bacteria related infections including life-threatening diseases like bronchitis, gonorrhea, Lyme disease. Other treatable health issues include infections of the ears, skin, throat, tonsils sinuses and urinary tract, but not for viral infections such as common cold and flu.

Ceftin medicine stops or slows down the speed of growth of bacterial cells by inhibiting the pathogen from forming cell walls around one another. The protective walls isolate the bacteria cells from releasing their contents to their environment. Therefore they cannot cause infections.
