hey girls, im full of a cold and wondered wether i can use vicks vapor rub? i just dont want to take anything at the moment as im not sure whats safe and unsafe! i really do need to take something for this cold, im really suffering!!!
Yes its completely safe to use. Its one of the things my doctor reccomended for use when I had a cold a couple of months ago. I'd usually use sudafed, ibobrufen, paracetamol and pro plus in some sort of 'cold coctail' but thats not possible in pregnancy so I had to make do with my lovely vapour rub! hehe
The whole house smelt of it when I was done! The only thing I would say is don't get it in your eye- it feels so weird and cold! x
Vicks is safe to use. Doctor called and told me to take tyenol, robitussin (chest congestion only) or sudafed. I took robitussin and tyenol and it helps a little. Didn't take sudafed as mine wasn't that severe at that time.
