I took Tom to the doctors today as he’s had a real cough this last week and been spiking quite high temp’s. While Nurofen is keeping his temperature in check he was getting no better so it was a trip to the doctors. After being checked out he said that what Tom had was viral so there was nothing that could be done at this time, I simply had to keep an eye on him to make sure that it doesn’t develop into anything more substantial.
What he did say was that, to relieve the coughing, I should run Vick VapoRub on the soles of his feet at bedtime and then put his socks over the top. He said it had been sent to him from a friend overseas and it had worked for him as it had with others that he knew and as he said, it’s not going to hurt so give it a try. I will try it tonight and let you know how Tom get’s on as it’s the coughing all night that is giving him the most hassle.
That said, a simple search on google has revealed that this is nothing new and lots of people have said they tried it with 100% success…take a look for yourself.
