Vicks Vapor Rub on Feet to Stop Coughing?

Answer

Some people put Vicks VapoRub (also known as Vapor Rub) on their feet to stop coughing. Once the Vicks VapoRub is applied, put a sock on each foot. People put Vicks VapoRub on their feet because it is supposed to stop coughing for many hours, and it is supposed to stop coughs within a few minutes. Some people think this is a myth because it does not work for them. However, it does seem to work for others. It seems to work with most children.
