Um, what do you want me to do to get rid of a cough, Internet?

It's that time of year again, where you get a cough or a chest cold and you start to 'Google' what to do about it. You may have seen this, or know a 'guy's cousin' that did this and it worked: Sleep with Vicks VapoRub on their feet with white cotton socks, and you'll be cough free!

Okay, I am not sure about this. The whole point of VapoRub is to have the 'vapors' hit your nose and open your airways, right? How in the world would this work on your feet? I am not a scientist, or a doctor, but this practice doesn't see to check out with me when it comes to placement of 'the rub'. Also, Vicks VapoRub maker Proctor and Gamble said, "We would not endorse it being used in this way."

Well, of course when I heard about this ailment relief that borders on weirdness, I took to the Internet for opinions:

opinion 1
opinion 2
opinion 3

Alright, so it seems to 'work'. Maybe. I'm still not sure if I will be doing this when I get a cough, but I might just start making up more things that this idea would be good for. Kind of like the Coconut Oil people have done with just about everything.
