Vicks Vaporub applied to the feet can stop a cough.

  Vicks Vaporub is well known for its use to ease chest congestion. Now people are hearing that Vicks applied to the soles of the feet will curtail a bad cough.

  This has been perpetuated by websites claiming a Canadian study proves that this works. But that’s where the trail turns cold. The group that supposedly published the study denies any knowledge of its existence.

  The web is filled with glowing testimonials that this works. And many parents welcome it as an alternative to drugs in children.
