He put the Vaporub on a cotton pad and stuck it in his ear ... A moment later? Amazing!

When I was kid, coughing meant you could feel me from a distance because I was talking about Vicks VapoRub.
I've never been a fan of the strong menthol scent, but it helps me combat cough and cold symptoms...it helps me breathe! Feeling utterly frustrated as we try to fall asleep with our noses stuffy, Vicks is just right. He can do more!

Vicks VapoRub is a topical menthol cream that contains menthol, camphor, and eucalyptus oil. It's effective in helping with congestion and coughing, and it can do more than that. For example... Suffering from earache? To reduce earache, apply a small amount of Vicks VapoRub to a cotton ball and place it in the ear several times a day.
