I was born and raised with Vicks Salve and here at 81 back to using it for at least the last 10 yrs. It's a pretty long standing healer and I use it on my feet day and nights and wear socks, smear on my lips at night and it's an Analgesic and helps calm arthritic pain and I rub it into my knees with my other stuff. A very inexpensive old time healing remedy and I buy the 6 oz jar online.

I used Vicks as a child for chest colds. Currently I'm using it along with Listerine for a toenail fungus (from a nail place a couple of years ago), that is stubborn and won't go away. All the OTC cures I've tried do not work, neither does tea tree oil or colloidal silver.
