My Hungarian grandmother thought Vick's cured everything. I must admit....when she rubbed it on my feet and legs for "growing pains" ...it always helped. I think of her every time I see or use Vicks. ;-)
As someone who has been diagnosed with migraines, this is actually quite helpful (and accurate, from what I know from my doctor visits.) Worth the read. And remember, try the hot/cold press before the medicine if you can. Too much medicine=more headaches.
