Does Vicks Vaporub Work For Asthma
Answer From Jay L. Hoecker, M.D. Vicks VapoRub — a topical ointment made of ingredients including camphor, eucalyptus oil and menthol that you rub on your throat and chest — doesn't relieve nasal congestion. But the strong menthol odor of VapoRub may trick your brain, so you feel like you're breathing through an unclogged nose. Vicks VapoRub is for external use only, stresses Mollie Wheeler, a spokesperson for Procter & Gamble.
As a cough suppressant for minor throat. The vicks will not compromise his asthma. I have 4 boys, 1 that had severe asthma (and Restrictive Airway Disorder when he was little) and the Vicks was my saving grace! I would use both the vicks on his feet and cover with socks and a humidifier with Vicks liquid in the water to.
