Merthiolate? The pink liquid that manicurists put onto your toes to prevent infection? Since this is a liquid, you might have to put it into your check-in luggage and not your carry-on.


Penicillin? How many is many? Depending on the amounts, you may or may not get questioned either here, at the POE, or both. Depending on the amount especially, Customs in the US might think you're bringing it in for sale and demand to see a prescription.

On the other hand you may get lucky and bring it all in without any problems.

Liquids that do not qualify as drugs or alcoholic beverage may be put in your checked baggage without restriction. Just pack them securely so they do not break.

Explosive or flammable liquid may not be brought on the plane at all.

Sharp objects for personal grooming, same rule. Checked baggage is OK.

Alcoholic beverage is limited to one bottle up to one quart in size per passenger. Must go in checked baggage. Exception is duty free shop where you can buy whatever you like. If you bring more you must declare it and pay possible import duty at the airport.

Cigarettes may be brought. Like alcohol, there is a quantity limit, above which you pay import duty.

Prescription medicine is OK as long as it is for you or your dependent children on the flight with you, is in the original prescription container and is limited to 90 day supply. If any is liquid and is over 3.5 ounces, it goes in the checked baggage only unless you need access to it during the flight.

There are severe restrictions on food. Generally meat and fish are on the X list, as are most cheeses. Tea and coffee need to be in the original container with a sealed wrapper. Live plant material is X list as well.

Regarding meds:

As a general rule, the FDA does not allow the importation of prescription drugs that were purchased outside the United States.

Again, you might pass without any problem, just don't have several gross of penicillin in your baggage.
