In our continued effort to keep our readers informed on safety matters, we feel that this article is noteworthy. The use of Vapo-Rub in young children may be harmful to babies and toddlers.

Improper use of Vapo-Rub may harm children

A new study warns about improper use of Vicks Vapo-Rub and similar products on babies and toddlers.

Researchers began studying the effects of Vicks Vapo-Rub after treating an 18-month-old girl for respiratory problems.

The product had been applied directly under her nose.

Using lab animals, researchers say the product appeared to stimulate mucus production and inflame airways.

Since babies have smaller air passageways, they say this could be a problem.

Vicks Vapo-Rub is labeled for use on children over age 2.

The package label also clearly directs users to rub it on the chest or throat, not under the nose.
