If you happen to be quite allergic to penicillin it may be best to
have someone else divide the powder if it is a large bottle to avoid
inhaling any or getting the powder in eyes. If you are very allergic
then it may also be that you'll need to wear gloves to give the
liquid or have someone else give it unless you like blisters.
