I don't know where these people come up with all of this crap.
It's a wonder I didn't kill my four children then.

Vicks is the only relief my daughter gets when she is sick since the doctors dont want kids to have any medication. I rub vicks very thick on my daughters feet. Put socks on her and send her to bed. NO COUGHING. and she get a good nights rest. Worked on me and I'm still alive. Works on anyone. Try it the next time you have a cough.

Rub the vicks on their feet and put socks on them, in about 1/2 hour it will help their breathing.
Will not be on their face, chest or a chance of it getting in their eyes...and it works!

It doesn't work too well however on children with asthma. I tried it on my son and he got worse. Now, however it does work on the rest of the family.. WE DO THE SOCK THING TOO... Yep, and we're all still fine !! The dog however.. is another story !
