Can you use vicks vaporub on a 4 month old??
My neighbour has 4 month old baby girl. One day I saw her applying Vicks vapor rub to that kid to arrest her cold. I don’t know whether it is good or bad. So I dint told her anything. Can anyone of you tell me whether it is good to use Vicks Vapor rub on 4 months old?
You should not use any product without consulting a pediatric. I donít think you should use Vicks Vapor Rub on 4 month old kid. It may produce any negative side effect on his/her respiratory system. So kindly avoid using vicks for at least 1 year.
Consult a doctor. Self medication is harmful especially for babies.
For an infant Vicks Vaporub and several other similar balms are purely prohibited; Since infants are merely fragile they easily get attracted to diseases & allergies.
So when infants are suffering from cold or fever kindly consult a reputed pediatrician or gynecologist, so they will suggest apt medicine with no side effects.
