An off label use for penicillin.? I really need to start reading those journals that are piling up. Who knows what other pharmacologic break throughs I've missed.

When you have a prescription, you get the pure stuff. When you buy your penicillin from a pusher out on the street, you never know what it's been cut with.

Shhh. Don't let the penicillin molecule know I used it as a rubefacient when I ran out of suntan dye before my last trip to Aruba. My skin itched like nobody's business, for weeks afterward, but at least I didn't appear 'washed out' on the beach.
