Just talking out loud ...... I wonder if this would help parts of our body that hurt really bad, but of course, if it did, it would make up smell bad! I was just talking with my niece who was telling me that her daughter's pediatrician told her, for her daughter's bad cough, to put Vicks Vapor Rub, on the bottom of her feet at night, put socks on, and put her to bed. That will help her cough. I started searching on the internet and found out that people did do that and it helped! During my searches, I also learned that diabetics also put the Vicks Vapor Rub on their feet at night to help the pain of diabetic neuropathy. Supposedly, it took the pain away. If it took the pain away from neuropathy in their feet, I wonder if we could put the Vicks on where we hurt, cover it with something that we could secure it (to keep the warmth feeling in and not to mess up our sheets), go to bed and get up feeling better????? Does this sound dumb?
