    Vicks Vapor Rub new cough remedy?

    So has anyone been hearing this latest thing about how you can cure a cough by putting Vicks vapor rub on your feet at night and also wearing socks and this cures the cough? Heard something on the radio this morning and all kinds of people have been calling in lately about how great this is. One guy even claimed it cured some kind of tingling sensation he was getting in his leg at night.

    Seems like a strange thing but if you google search you'll find all kinds of stuff on it too.

    On a side note, they should get Michael Vick to be in their commercials...

    I've heard of it, we do it with my son sometimes, don't know if it helps but it can't hurt, anything to get him to sleep better when he's sick.

    If the cough doesn’t kill you, slipping on the bathroom floor in the middle of the night with greasy feet will!

    We've tried it with our kids and we seem to think it works. You have to put it on pretty thick though. I've never tried it on myself.

    I think we heard about it a couple years ago.

    How could that possibly help?

    I have some friends that are just crazy enough to try that this weekend. I will get back to you on that one.

    Yeah, you're right... There's no possible way for the stuff to get through the impermeable barrier of cotton.

    Re: Vicks Vapor Rub new cough remedy?

    I remember when I was a kid with a bad cough getting a "Hot Toddy" from the old man. Which was nothing more than a shot of Crown Royal and sugar. I remember it tasting horrible, but I sure did sleep good. Anyone else remember those remedies? Would a parent go to joil for that these days?
