vicks is a crock!

well... here's what i did last night - vicks on feet, chest & a good dosage of the cough syrup. i didn't cough until 3, but then i coughed for an hour. so - i don't credit it as doing much, as that's about typical on anynight. vicks or not. and I HATED sleeping in socks!

I grew up with the Vicks treatments. My mom rubbed it on my chest and throat and then tied a hankie around my neck. Sorry it did not work for you.

i am a barefoot girl, all day long. no shoes, no socks. but when i go to bed, i HAVE to wear socks. it bugs chris, for some reason. (why should he care?) he is the exact opposite...shoes on all day, and barefoot to bed. it's sort of the perfect illustration of our relationship...yin and yang.

My husband should make you some of his cough suryp. it works like way too well. He puts in Apple Cider Vinegar (which we lovingly call ACV), honey, cayeanne pepper, fresh ginger, maybe some hot peppers? I'm not sure exaclty, you want me to ask him? It sure cleans up the sinuses, and stops the coughing for a few hours. Poor wit-o hayley. :-\

I figured the nighties were retired now, but back in the day, did you do nighties with socks?

I'm disappointed in Vicks, but I'm with you--I hate wearing socks at night. I always wake up in the night and my feet are on fire and I can't sleep with hot feet.
