What can I do to make it better? Is Vicks safe for a 15 month old?

  • I would use the vicks for baby. Also take the child into a bathroom and run the shower really hot and just sit in the bathroom. It will help him breath.

  • The make a children's VIcks. Use that instead of the adult version. It does not "burn" as much.

  • Put the Vick's on the bottom of the feet and cover with socks at bedtime. This really helps with congestion. Just wash feet really well in the morning. Also, run a vaporizer at night and elevate her head when she is sleeping.
