I occasionally have trouble sleeping. Using it on my feet helps me relax and sleep through the night.

Viks has 4.1% camphor in it as active ingredient. It treated my cough, cold and skin issues entirely. Originally, to provide me relief from cough and cold, a nurse from Amazon care sent me care package with vick's in it, to my home. Surprisingly, vicks cured my cough and cold overnight along with my skin issues. My skin is acne and allergy prone - it has uneven texture and several hyper-pigmented blemishes (from acne healing from several years ago). By applying Vicks, at bedtime, on my forehead, nose bridge (while protecting regions around eyes, nostrils and mouth), lower portions of cheek, chin and throat, vicks provided me immediate relief from incessant cough and cold. I reapplied vicks every 3-4 hours during the day, on my nose tip and sides of nose above nostrils and followed the previous routine for bedtime for 2-3 days and my cough and cold went away on its own. Vicks helped me 1000x more than any cough drops, tea, honey, day or nyquills did. Within 3-4 days my entire face's redness, dryness, blemished hyper-pigmented patches were gone and it looked 10 years younger. Vicks helped me more than my dermatologist's tretinoin (active vitamin A + hydroquinone) and allergy specialist's steroid ointment did in 2 years. Only downside is, I need to apply Vicks routinely at bedtime to get that skin in the morning. Read More Read Less

Vicks vaporub works great for hemmoroids. At bedtime, apply a dab directly on the hemmoroid, it will burn momentarily, but will shrink it by morning

It works better than anything I have ever used. Vick's Vapor Rub is the best thing going for toe fungus.
