Folk cure

So I read online that if you put Vicks Vapor Rub on a child's (or adult's) feet, then put socks on, coughing will vanish instantly. I checked on snopes.com and found out that, even though no one knows why, this works 100% of the time. So I'm trying it for Z tonight. She was coughing for about an hour in the middle of the night, ugh.

Good tip. I never liked Vicks (or Nyquil because of the burning sensation), but I know a lot of people swear by it. I saw this DIY rub (http://www.inkedincolour.com/family-friendly-vapour-rub-diy/) that I thought looked cool.
