Applying vaporizing rubs on the chest and neck when suffering from cough and cold is very common.
Vaporizing rubs contain strong menthol and camphor vapours that cool down the respiratory passage and ease the discomfort.
But the question is “Is VapoRub safe for babies?“
Despite being a fast-acting relief, the use of vaporizing rubs on babies is not preferred by doctors. Here’s why:
Where the use of vaporizing rubs can ease the discomfort in adults, it could worsen the condition in babies.
Choose doctor prescribed safer treatments for cough and congestion release in babies and alternative safer options for congestion relief that do not contain camphor.
