Penicillin VK

Penicillin VK (PenVeeK) and G procaine (WYcillin) currently are recommended as first-line

agents for treating moderately severe skin infections and skin structure. In case of adults,

administering of penicillin G procaine by the deep intramuscular injection onto

upper and

outer quadrant of the buttock is preferred. In case of small children and infants, midlateral

aspects of thigh might be a better spot for administration.
