This is why it pays to have a EMT as a hubby. We were in bed last night & he woke me up b/c I was making a noise when I was breathing. He packed us all up & took me to the ER because I’ve got pneumonia. The tub of VICKs says don’t put IN nostrils, which I didn’t, but APPARENTLY putting it under your nose is just as big of a no-no—Which they should put on the container because my mother has done this to me since birth and her mother probably did the same for her. The doc said don’t put it ANYWHERE where you can accidentally inhale the petroleum particles into your lungs—because the body cannot get rid of it and IT’LL GIVE YOU PNEUMONIA. Just a warning to everyone else out there. I’m home and already feeling tons better.
