  8. I had a problem with both my large toe nails. Went to buy a good nail fungus cure in the chemist at a cost of £25 . When lady told me to try Vicks first. I did thinking that won't work. BUT IT DID .I put on my god nails at night, word socks, and it was gone on both goes in a week. And never came back. Didn't cost me a penny, cause I already had some at home. I told a friend about it to, and worked for her as well. Brilliant.

  10. Growing up my parents used this for every cold, flu, cough, etc.. From rubbing it on your chest & neck to under each nostril, but the most effective when battling a bad cold with fever & chills, etc, my Mom (she was also an RN) would slather Vicks on our feet then pull on warm cotton socks (out of the dryer, ahhh!) then a a 2nd pair if big fuzzy socks! I swear we called it the "Cure" and it really works, still use it to this day. I always have a Big Jar of Vicks in my medicine cabinet.
