All liquids, gels, pastes and so on, are permitted as long as they are in containers that are 3.4 ounces (100 ml) or less. And, all of the containers that you take must fit into a 1 qt. zip lock bag.

If the prescription acne gel is less than the 3.4 ounce (100 ml) limit, then there are no problems – be sure to put it into the 1 qt. bag with all other items.

The TSA has this to say about medical items that are more than the 3.4 ounce limit:

Additionally, we are continuing to permit prescription liquid medications and other liquids needed by persons with disabilities and medical conditions. This includes:

* All prescription and over-the-counter medications (liquids, gels, and aerosols) including KY jelly, eye drops, and saline solution for medical purposes;
* Liquids including water, juice, or liquid nutrition or gels for passengers with a disability or medical condition;
* Life-support and life-sustaining liquids such as bone marrow, blood products, and transplant organs;
* Items used to augment the body for medical or cosmetic reasons such as mastectomy products, prosthetic breasts, bras or shells containing gels, saline solution, or other liquids; and,
* Gels or frozen liquids needed to cool disability or medically related items used by persons with disabilities or medical conditions.

However, if the liquid medications are in volumes larger than 3.4 ounces (100ml) each, and A declaration can be made verbally, in writing, or by a person’s companion, caregiver, interpreter, or family member.

Declared liquid medications and other liquids for disabilities and medical conditions must be kept separate from all other property submitted for x-ray screening.

Edit: Kudos to Kevin. He is quite right – everything that I mentioned applies to carry-on, not to checked bags.

Roger K is completely accurate in his answer but I would add one thing. Roger is assuming you want to take these things on as hand luggage. If so he is correct. If you are carrying them in checked luggage then you can carry as much as you want to. I think you should carry prescription medication on as hand luggage and put the rest in your checked bags.

Make sure your prescribed stuff is clearly labelled and if possible take a letter from your doctor stating that it is essential that you travel with them.
