Here Are 7 Uses Of Vicks Vaporub You Surely Wouldn’t Expect—And They Work!

Health 1022

The only known use for Vicks Vaporub is to help cure cold and flu. Apply enough amount on your chest, throat, and nose—and expect you cold to be gone in a while. But did you know it had so many other uses that can help you with your daily body problems?

Vicks for Migraine attacks and headaches

Apply enough amount of Vicks Vaporub and apply it on your temples and massage it in. Just make sure to keep it away from your eyes.

Cold Relief

Though most of us use Vicks Vaporub on the chest for cold relief, another way would be to apply a little amount on your feet before going to sleep. Expect your cold to be gone in the morning once you wake up and get ready for breakfast.

Stretch Marks

Many women dread having these. After giving birth, or suddenly losing weight, women (and men) have stretch marks all over their bodies. While creams work sometimes, they can be really expensive. Apply a supple amount of Vicks Vaporub on the affected area at least once a day and expect results in just a week!

Loose Skin

Just like stretch marks, loose skin can be a problem for women who just gave birth or just lost weight. Apply enough amount to the affected area, and wrap it tightly with a bandage before going to sleep at night. Expect excellent results in just a week.

Toenail Fungus

Take some Vicks, apply it on the affected nail body, and it will kill the fungus. You will notice that your nail will turn dark—this means that the fungus is already dead. All you have to do is let the ‘dead toenail’ grow out.

Cat and Dog Training

Are you sick and tired of your cat scratching your sofa and everything else he sets his eyes on? Apply Vicks Vaporub on the item you DON’T want your cat to be touching and voila! You’d notice they will stop going to that area.

Cuts, Bruises, and Bug Bites

Apply a little amount on the affected area where you have bug bites. You will notice that aside from totally removing the swelling, the itching will go away too!
