In a St. Joseph Health Scene Report, a new study is warning parents about the use of Vicks VapoRub on children. The report says the product can clog tiny airways and make breathing difficult for children less than two years old. The maker of Vicks, Proctor and Gamble already warns against using it on babies that age, but says it has no evidence Vicks poses any danger when used properly.
