Vicks VapoRub is a cold vaporising ointment. For symptomatic relief from blocked nose and cough due to colds.
Vicks VapoRub works two ways
Vapour action: When applied, the special Vicks medications turn into medicinal vapours.
These are inhaled to help clear blocked nose, ease breathing and coughing.
For deeper relief, partly fill a bowl with steaming water, add 2 teaspoonfuls of VapoRub and inhale vapours for 10-15 minutes. Repeat as necessary. Children should be closely supervised to avoid scalding.
Warming action: When rubbed, the special Vicks medication helps soothe muscular aches and pains due to colds.
