Coughing is as inevitable as a change in season, even in the healthiest kids.
But when a few days of coughing stretch into a week or two (or longer!), it’s only natural to be concerned. Though you can never go wrong by calling your pediatrician—especially if your kiddo’s cough lingers for 10 days or longer—you might also consider turning to your pantry or medicine cabinet for an at-home remedy.
One of the most popular DIY cures involves rubbing Vicks VapoRub on the bottom of your child’s feet and chest at night, then covering those feet with socks, and repeating a few times. Though it sounds odd, some parents swear that come morning, the nagging cough is a distant memory.
According to people who use this technique, the application of Vicks on feet can stop coughing for several hours. According to other people, this technique is only a myth to them since it just doesn’t work at all. However, this process actually works for children.
Applying VapoRub on feet is found to be more effective than prescribed medicines for children at bedtime, and in addition, to have a soothing and calming effect on sick children who then went on to sleep soundly.
