Vick's vapor rub on feet???

My kids have been sick and congested, my aunt said instead of putting the rub on their chest to put it on their feet with socks? Has anyone heard of this?

  • i have heard of it, and actually done it. it works great!! better than on the chest, i think. its not as easy to rub off because the socks are fitted and theres less rubbing going on. =]

  • Well, now you all have me curious....what does it do to put it on the feet? I guess these are very little children whose feet are relatively close to their noses.....Isn't the whole point to breath in the vapors?

  • I did it with my kids, and my grandkids. My grandkids pediatrrician suggested it for my gs who is allergic to sooooo many things. It really helped with his cough and congestion. All I know is the regular old vicks rub and a clean pair of white cotton socks works wonders for mine.
