« on: December 07, 2013, 12:50:54 pm »
Vicks vapour rub on my chest? Hubs and Ostin have been ill for a few days and inevitably I am now coming down with it. Can I use vapour rub and olbas oil?

I use the vapor rub on my feet after I shower and put socks on. I used it for my girls too ages 3.5 and 4 and they got better in a few days

It works, too! @doritos posted that a few weeks ago. When I got sick, I put that on my feet 2x a day. Damned if it didn't cut my cold my in half!

I talked to the ped about it, too, and he never heard of it. He said I could put it on the baby's feet if she gets sick.

In regards to you, Sarah, I don't know. It uses the same ingredients as muscle rub and it all pretty much depends on your doc. I've heard yes and no for usage.

@waltmiere I've seen it a few times on here and decided to try it. It helped w my girls however it didn't help w me because it turned out I had bronchitis.

Vicks on the feet helps break up congestion and Controls coughing :)
