This is a product no one in my family can live without. Anytime someone has sinus problems, cold, sore throat, ear ache, etc. - we grab "the green tin". Can't say that it "cures" the problem, but it usually takes the pain away immediately. Not something that you want to use just before going out, as the smell is kinda' strong; but really could not live without it. Also, be aware that when you use it near your eyes - they'll water.

My dh used to laugh at me when our boys would tell me about some pain and I'd say to get "the green tin" - then he finally tried it and now he uses it and tells our boys to get "the green tin" 8^) Also, recommended it to a friend whose son has sinus problems and he loves it too.

Good but burns skin

It does clear stuffed nose and relieves coughs but I had bad burning sensation on my skin and had to wipe it off. I don't know if I will be able to use it...Read complete review

It does clear stuffed nose and relieves coughs but I had bad burning sensation on my skin and had to wipe it off. I don't know if I will be able to use it on my kids because of it.

    This has been on the market for decades and is still one of the best treatments for chest and head congestion there is. It is hard to find locally, but the Drug Store online has it all. I'm glad I found it.

          Comments about J.R. Watkins Menthol Camphor Medicated Cough Suppressant Rub, 4.12 oz:

          I grew up on this my Mom would grease our chest as soon as there was any sign of cold season and make use swallow a little bit. My brothers and myself would always frown, but we also didn't get the colds and flu and coughs that come with cold season. As an adult I have reintroduced it to my kids same reaction but it works and not just for what's on the label it is a JACK OF ALL TRADES!!

              Like compressed Vick's vapor rub. Good stuff, not that strong (chinese oils are very strong). Used it when I had a cold to moisturize my nose, rub on chest. But the tin is wide and flat and a pain to open if you have small hands.

                My husband and I are just getting over the chest flu. We have never been so congested and this worked a miracle for that, along with some non-medicated saline nasal soluction, good chap stick, and plenty to drink and we're swiftly on the mend. Excellent stuff!! And, so many uses, what a treasure of a product to have on hand.
