Not effective

It is not effective and doesn't work on me at all. The medicated vapors didn't relieve my cough and headache that I had flu earlier. I'd rather take medication instead.

No, I don't recommend this product

Good for colds, coughs, aches, pains, rough skin.

I used the product for many reasons. First of all, I had a cold and used it to rub on my chest and throat. I also rubbed it all over my feet after reading that it would also help with congestion by putting it on the feet also. It seemed to be even more effective that way and it also helped a lot with my heels which were rough from going barefoot a lot during the summer. It also helped my aches and pains from over exertion and that I find is what I like it the most for. I did not find that it stained either.

2 thumbs up for Vicks

I used the Vicks on my son who had a bad chest cold. He loved the smell, so he had no problems with me rubbing it on him. He claimed it helped him sleep better. I definetly noticed an improvement with his cough after the first night.
