Hi,

I just wanted to confirm if i could use Vicks vaporub on my 4 month old daughter?

hi, I dont think that you should be using anything without consulting your pediatrician about it. I dont like the sound of Vaporub on a 4 month old baby. It can have possible negative side effects. Please check with the doctor. You baby is too young.

Hi, I would agree with Ajay. Please check out with a doctor. Self medication is very risky in case of small children.

For children as small as your daughter, it is a complete NO! This is harmful for your baby. please dont go for it. Your child can suffer from allergies if you go for this. Consult a doctor and only use the medications which have been prescribed by them.

It is advisable not to use vicks on infants, as it causes a kind of irritation in the airways and will increase the mucus making it difficult for the baby to breath. It is recommended for visiting a doctor for proper treatment.
