I have had wonderful success with coughs for my child with this. I slather the vicks on his feet, put on socks and the coughing stops immediately for 6 plus hours, so we can all get a good nights sleep. If he wakes up coughing, I repeat this, and the coughing stops again. I have not figured out how to stop the cough in the daytime. Have had some success with honey with a pinch of black pepper.
Yes!! Vicks worked on my 6 year old and almost instantly!!
I've tried the Vicks remedy several times on my 6 year old daughter. It has never worked for her.
I had heard about Vics for coughs through a friend and within a short time, my grand-daughter came down with a bad cough (every couple of minutes). We used the vapor rub on her feet and put socks on her. Her coughing stopped within 15 minutes and lasted all day! Sooo much better than giving all those over the counter medications.
