Is it ok to carryon large volume (more than the 3oz rule) of sunscreen lotion for flight?
The TSA website says the following: "You may bring all prescription and over-the-counter medications (liquids, gels, and aerosols) including petroleum jelly, eye drops, and saline solution for medical purposes. You are not limited in the amount or volume of these items you may bring in your carry-on baggage. BUT if the medically necessary items exceed 3 ounces or are not contained in a one-quart, zip-top plastic bag, you MUST declare to one of our Security Officers at the checkpoint for further inspection."
I have successfully passed through security with huge amount of sunscreen lotion but have never been really sure if it's allowed. Does suncreen count as overcounter meds or jelly for medical purpose?Edited: 21 October 2011, 15:31
