Vicks which we use has many side effects.I used it and noticed that it didn't actually provide any relief(maybe shortly)but on a longer run, it was not helping.


Vicks Vaporub isn't meant for infants below 2 years. Any menthol and camphor based product like Vicks Vaporub is toxic and can be harmful to a babies' respiratory system. personally it makes me hard to breathe. Moreover, it can lead to increase in mucus and congestion, especially in children who have narrow airways when compared to adults.


Coming to the effect of Vicks Vaporub in adults, studies show that Vicks Vaporub may provide a comfortable feeling to people with congestion, but in real, it does not increase the airflow nor relieve congestion.Vicks Vaporub is NOT banned in America or by WHO, but it is important to use it as per the instructions, especially for babies. If you do not use it as per the instructions, there are certain negative effects associated with the usage of Vicks Vaporub. You can find the information in reference section. There was this message circulating in social sites that vicks is banned in europe which is not true.
