    I like many others use this product when I have a cold/flu. Lately, I've tried it for muscle aches and it works beautifully. It also makes a great sleeping aid. I apply it topically before bed and sleep well through the night. It helps me to relax and fall comfortably to sleep.

    The old Vicks was WONDERFUL!! This new version...they must have changed the formula because it does NOT smell the same, and doesn't seem to have the same benefits as the "old" Vicks. Sad.

      Comments about Vicks VapoRub Topical Ointment, 1.76 oz:

      Used as a child, adult and mother. Better breathing at night, better sleep for little ones and adults. Also, found that a skin(yeast)irritation in a humid climate can be healed faster if applied to clean skin morning and night. Easier than trying to keep the area dry and powdered (which often turns gummy).

        Comments about Vicks VapoRub Topical Ointment, 1.76 oz:

        I agree with others that the smell is not quite as strong and the salve is a little softer (maybe not quite as greasy) I call that improving the formula. On the other hand, you may go through the jar faster than the old stuff but, I just watch and realized I don't need to use as much. I use at night along with Breathe Right strips to help my sleep. Works Great! BONUS: I found that skin irritations (sometimes happens under my breasts in the summer) goes away much faster when I use Vicks along with a dry cloth.

                    Have this smallest size handy by my bedside and in guest bedroom, especially during the winter months.
                    Great for promoting/facilitating breathing when congested with head colds.
                    I rub a small amount over sinus areas and/or at opening of nostrils to promote smooth breathing when congested.
                    Great for healing small skin abrasions, too.
                    This product has been a fave in our family, for three generations!

                            NP suggested using on toe for toenail fungus. Safer than the drugs and a lot less expensive. Just keep on the toe. Clear in just a few days.
