    Here is a way to stop the horrible coughing that the children get when they have a cold, AND it works for adults too.

    Just before going to bed put vicks salve thickly on the bottom of the feet and put on some thick cotton socks. The coughing will stop in about 5 minutes and you can sleep all night. try it. ggks

    It just seemed to do more good by adding it to the feet as well....almost a reflexology thing........or Chinese medicine. Who knows? But I know that it helped.
