For some people having a cold is much worse than having a fever.
The constant sneezing and wheezing puts you in a position of unrest. The running nose is even worse as you have to keep using your handkerchief at a gap of almost every five to ten seconds.
Vicks VapoRub has been used by all of us for temporary relief and usually we apply it on our nose, chest, and neck and that too when we go to bed at night.
But a question has emerged recently and that is if the application of Vicks can give an instant relief if it is applied on the feet.
The idea of rubbing the vaporub on the feet has got viral as it has been shared on the Facebook forums. The word that has been spread is that applying this on feet will give an affected person great relief.
But at the end of the day there is no scientific basis or claim that has been made so far regarding this and that remains crucial. However, a psychologist conformed that this type of a method can really work because this can help in reducing the stress.
According to Dr. Lynee Jordan the coughing and wheezing can take a temporary reduction. However, the cough that is way too severe and if the person is not getting fine then it could also be a sign of some other disease or health issue.
The symptoms such as the combination of fever and cough, difficulty while breathing, higher fatigue levels, interference in sleep due to coughing and difficult in swallowing food could mean something else as well.
Many experts might argue that vicks might work as a placebo but the vaporub supporters can’t stop praising it. However, visiting a doctor is always beneficial.
