A friend of mine told me that to stop a nighttime cough, rub Vicks onto your FEET, not the chest. Well, I laughed and thought, "yea right." Well, Sam had a cough awhile ago and we couldn't get it to stop, so I rubbed Vicks on his feet and to my amazement, plus my happiness, he stopped coughing - for the rest of the night! I tried it on Jack who had a persistent cough, and cure enough, it worked on him too!
Last night I kept coughing through the night (annoying drainage) and decided to put some Vicks on my feet and WHA LA...
no more cough for the night.
I don't know what it is, but it does work.
So next time you have an annoying cough (or someone in the house does) rub Vicks on their feet and sleep the night away!!
(Or if you have left over codeine cough medicine take some and you won't hear a thing!)
