Vicks VapoRub is one of my very best friends. You might think that I'm only saying that because I'm currently in the throes of bronchitis. You'd probably even be right. Regardless, Vicks VapoRub is pretty darned cool.
To begin with, Vicks VapoRub comes in a blue plastic bottle. This, in of itself, is pretty special. What other drugs can you think of that come in a bottle like that? There's just something so soothing about that blue plastic bottle.
Then there's the method of administration -- no pills to choke down, no nasty thick liquid to swallow, just rub some smooth Vicks VapoRub on and you're good to go. (This especially comes in handy if you're attempting to treat violent children). You can rub it on your throat or on your chest. If you have a sore leg or arm, just rub away with Vicks VapoRub. How the same drug gets rid of my stuffy nose and cramped calf muscle at the same time is beyond me, but it appears to work somehow or another. There are, however, some places where Vicks VapoRub should not be applied. Far be it from me, however, to deny you the joy of discovering these on your own.Click here for more information on the wonder of Vicks VapoRub!
