    I am a 77 year old retired Army Sergeant Major that had a cough for about nine years. Numerous MDs to include lung specialists were not able to do much.
    With massive doses of antibodies it would clear up in about seven days then in a week the cough would be back, especially at night. Got an email about rubbing the bottom or the feet about two years ago. It worked great.

    DO NOT put it on your feet. I mean you can if you want to but it doesnt work. I have had a night cough for days now. I tried it all night and all I did was cough. Its just something that may work for some and not for others. But it was a waste of my time. I still cant sleep. I cough and vomit all night. Nothing is working... Oh well, just thought I would let you all know.

    I was in and out of the hospital with my Son (who is 6) twice today for very high fevers, swelling eyes, and a rash that keeps spreading. On top of all of that he has a bad cough. He has had this for 2-3 weeks now. The doctors finally prescribed something, but I can't fill it until the morning. After all of this I am told by a friend to try the VICKS on the bottom of the feet and put socks over it. IT WORKS!! I haven't heard one cough out of him since I put him to bed. I wish I knew about this 3 weeks ago. Thanks VICKS!!!

    We rubbed Vicks on the bottoms of our 3 and 1 year olds feet and it stopped the coughing immediately. They slept better that night than they had all week. This product is fabulous even with the weird recommendation of putting it on your feet.

    Comments about Vicks VapoRub Topical Ointment, 6 oz:

    I have two children age 4 and 6 and at this time of year they have bad allergies with a lot of coughing. One has a congested type of cough and the other has a wheezing type of cough. Both are coughing all through the night. Today my sister in law told me she heard that if you rub Vicks vapor rub on the bottom of their feet and put socks on it will help them sleep. I thought she was a little crazy but I am desperate as my kids are not getting enough sleep. So I ran out and bought some. When I put my 4 yr old to bed we had a good laugh as I tickled her feet to put it on. She has been asleep for 3 hours now and only coughed once and that was when she first went down. I cant wait to put it on my sons feet. I will definitely use this again. After all its cheaper than cough medicine and goes along way and I'm not filling my kids up with medicine. Thank you Vicks!!

    This may sound unconventional, but when my teenage daughter was suffering from general anxiety disorder, I bought some Vick's and just let her open the jar and smell it. It would make her feel like she was taking a deep breath when she physically felt like she wasn't. The sensation was very comforting and reassuring to her that she was breathing OK.

    I want to share a cough remedy that a 93 year old friend of mine shared. I had a terrible cough that was keeping me from getting any rest, and my friend said to rub Vicks on the bottom of my feet and put some heavy socks on before going to bed. I thought she was crazy, but I was desperate! Well, it WORKED GREAT--I slept all through the night! I've shared this crazy sounding rememdy with many people, who've also had success with it! Vicks is great, so is my friend!

    I love having VapoRub around for sore throats, and especially for a stuffy nose. So many times my husband or I are concerned with a stuffed-up nose. Either of us just rubs the VapoRub on the stuffy nose a couple times. Within an hour, our noses are relieved of pressure, and we can breathe again. It is a great product, and we will continue to use it the rest of our lives.

    Works amazingly well. The best cough suppressant I've ever used. Just rub on your chest and neck before bed and inhale with deep breaths- your cough and congestion will be gone quickly!

    This is such a great product. I really stops coughing, and the vapors clear and soothe the nose and throat. And it's nice and moisturizing. It's just pure cold season Zen.
