My 10 yr old dd has a bad cold and I'm thinking about putting Vicks on the bottom of her feet but I'm not sure what this is supposed to do. Does it help with a runny nose, cough, ...??? I've read about it several times but it's just that parents do it, not why they do it.
I don't know if it does anything, but I do it lol. I figured it's worth a shot, and it couldn't hurt. I know rosemary oil (one of the ingredients in baby vicks) can be used on muscles to increase bloodflow. Other than that, at least it's a good moisturizer.
