Relief From The Common Cold
While Vicks VapoRub Cough Suppressant Topical Analgesic Ointment provides relief from the common cold, it does not prevent infection or spread of the common cold. The common cold is a viral infection that is transmitted through the air or through contact with infected persons. Contrary to common thought, being in cold weather does not cause cause an increased risk for contracting the common cold.
However, cold weather does increase person to person contact due to more people being indoors for longer amounts of time. Because the common cold is a viral infection, antibiotics do not offer any effective treatment. Antibiotics are used to kill bacterial infections, not viral infections. The common cold has no cure or vaccine. The best treatment for a common cold is to treat the symptoms to provide optimal relief. Cough suppressants like Vicks VapoRub help you beat your cold infection by allowing you to recover easier and providing you relief from pesky cold symptoms.
