"Penicillin (PCN or pen) is a group of antibiotics which include penicillin G (intravenous use) , penicillin V (use by mouth) , procaine penicillin, and benzathine penicillin (intramuscular use). Penicillin antibiotics were among the first medications to be effective against many bacterial infections caused by staphylococci and streptococci. Penicillins are still widely used today, though many types of bacteria have developed resistance following extensive use."
