Vicks VapoRub is one of the most popular cold remedies. It has been around a very long time; most of our grandparents used Vicks VapoRub as children. The primary use for Vicks VapoRub is as a temporary cough reliever. You can also use it as a rub for achy muscles. Many of us find the scent and the warming sensation soothing. Vicks VapoRub also soothes sore throats and helps you breathe a little better.
Rub a thick layer of Vicks VapoRub on your chest and/or neck.
Cover the area with a towel.
Repeat up to three times a day.
