Vicks VapoRub works two ways: i. Vapour action: When applied, the special Vicks medications turn into medicinal vapours. These are inhaled to help clear blocked nose, ease breathing and coughing. For deeper relief, partly fill a bowl with steaming water, add 2 teaspoonfuls of VapoRub and inhale vapours for 10-15 minutes. Repeat as necessary. Children should be closely supervised to avoid scalding. ii. Warming action: When rubbed, the special Vicks medication helps soothe muscular aches and pains due to colds.
