Googles in the Night

A few weeks ago I had a bad cold. On the second night of bad coughing fits that wouldn't calm down with various thing I tried, I googled in desperation (and sleep deprivation):

coughing fit can't sleep
I came across the suggestion to rub Vicks Vap-o-Rub on my feet and put socks over it so it wouldn't get rubbed off.

It worked. Beautifully! Thanks Google. :)

Vicks Vap-o-Rub is my standby for coughs and colds. Never thought of putting it on feet before, though!

Wow. Me neither! I always OD on Benadryl... at least I sleep soundly.


Thanks for the tip.

I've heard that dark chocolate works great for coughs, too. Would be worth a try! :o)

Now that sounds like a remedy I'd be willing to test. :)
