Will your child get sick if you take them outside with Vicks Vapourub on their chest?
Someone told me that if you did they would get sick and eventually develop asthma...is this true in any way shape or form?

Vicks Vapo Rub should be used on your chest when your inside the house, you shouldn't go out with it on. You can get pneumonia.

No, that's a myth. It's fine.

The chemicals can't be good for them if they are not sick.


onethousandmilesfromnowhere
i don't think i'd smear the kid down in vapor rub and take him outside in the freezing air


puppygirl
No that's not true but there's no point in putting it on them if they're not sick.


CJBig
No, just an old wives tale.

No. Germs cause illness. Viruses and bacteria. Vick's does not cause asthma, but you should not use it on someone who does have asthma.

Vicks vaporub opens up breathing tubes, and is recommended in emergencies for people who already have asthma, who are having an attack and without their inhalers or the means of obtaining one.

I was asthmatic and I remember my mom plastering me with Vick's Vaporub. It never harmed me. It helped me sleep better. I did the same with my children and they never got sick. I still use it when I have a cold. I even put a little bit on my temples when I have a bad headache.


ellorra25
no thats not true at all. people get sick from germs not from being outside or from vicks vapor rub. Then reason people get sick more often in the winter is not because they go outside its because they don't and germs are spread from everyone being shut in. hope this helps.


Dances With Woofs!
No,it won't hurt them.It's an old wive's tale.My mother used to tell me that when I was small,and I'm not dead yet.Since they will smell like eucalyptus,the worst that will happen is that they will attract Koalas LOL
