Vicks VapoRub

Vicks VapoRub relieves nasal catarrh, congestion, sore throat and coughs due to colds. The ointment contains natural oils, carefully selected for their soothing properties:
  • Levomenthol and camphor calm a cough.
  • Eucalyptus oil and Levomenthol relieve nasal congestion (blocked nose).
  • Eucalyptus oil relieves catarrh.
