How to stop cough in 5 minutes!!!

This is a must try…

We have all been kept awake by our own or someone else’s cough. Try this and pass it on. The tip and not the cough. ANYTHING is better than antibiotics. Even babies could benefit from this and the parents wouldn’t worr y about the safety of their child. And of course, it is harmless and free from any type of side-effects.

READ IT ALL. It works 100 percent of the time, although the scientists at the Canada Research
council (who discovered it) aren’t sure why.

Treatment : To stop nighttime coughing in a child (or an adult, as we found out personally), put Vick s Vapor Rub generously on the bottom of the feet at bedtime and then cover with socks. Even persistent, heavy, deep coughing will stop in about five minutes and stay stopped for many, many hours of relief. This works 100 percent of the time, and is more effective in children than even very strong prescription cough medicines. In addition it is extremely soothing and comforting and they will sleep soundly. I heard the head of the Canada Research Council describe these findings on the part of their scientists when they were investigating the effectiveness and usage of prescription cough medicines in children, as compared to alternative therapies like acupressure. I just happened to tune in to a.m. Radio and picked up this guy talking about why cough medicines in kids often do more harm than good due to the chemical makeup of these strong drugs, so I listened. It was a surprising  ;finding and found to be more effective than prescribed medicines for children at bedtime,
and in addition to have a soothing and calming effect on sick children who then went on to sleep soundly. My wife tried it on herself when she had a very deep constant and persistent cough a few weeks ago, and it worked 100 percent! She said it felt like a warm blanket had enveloped her. The coughing stopped in a few minutes, and believe me this was a deep (incredibly annoying!) every few seconds, uncontrollable cough and she slept cough-free for hours every night she used it. If you have children or grandchildren, pass it on. If you end up sick, try it yourself and you will be
absolutely amazed by the effect.



  1. Am not sure about putting Vicks on your feet. Sounds like a web hoax. You might want to try hydrogen peroxide. I have been using regular 3 per cent store type hydrogen peroxide as mouth wash and it works quite well. Swish it around for a minute or so. It kills germs and bad breath. There are other oxygen type mouth washers but they cost a lot more. You can gargle with hydrogen peroxide which will help kill germs in your throat; just don’t swallow it. They are also making spray bottles of hydrogen peroxide which can get back in your throat area without gargling. But don’t use it in your nose. Also don’t use the 30 per cent hydrogen peroxides from health food stores as it is hard to dilute and too high a percentage will burn you.

  2. The vicks on the feet is not a web hoax it has been around longer that the internet itself! It works….try it before you knock it and you will see for yourself

  3. Heya.
    This is a cool blog, thanks for this post very much. You know I was awake late in bed tonight wondering what I could do to sooth this. N thanks to you I have a remedy, it really is a great way of relieving a cough. I also tried some honey and had a nice warm shower. Hopefully all goes well.

    Keep it up champ

  4. o i hope this works my aunt is coughing like crazy she about to vomit thanks for advice im gonna tell her to try it now.

  5. I have tried a remedy that works and it is rubbing some vix or vaporub on the souls of your feet with a tissue which will stop a dry cough interfering when you are trying to sleep. Vix or Vaporub is availabe to be bought at your local supermarket.

  6. my daughter was coughing every couple of minutes, I just did this remedy and she has been cough free for entire episode of Franklin. It work! Thanks!

  7. we where ready to take our dautgher to the e.r. then tried this trick……………no more coughing!

  8. it works…..i have tried it belive it!

  9. I tried this on my son and it did not work!

  10. I sip slowly on freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 3 tablespoons- you can do a little more or less, depending on your tolerance)trying to annoint well the walls of my throat.
    this has proven to save my nights when coughing was so strong that it would not let me sleep and would almost choke me.
    I have never tried to drink plain water after it, so i would not know what would the water’s effect be, if you did drink, following the intake of the lemon juice.
    But , the lemon really helps

  11. I have had a persistent stomach,throat ripping cough for about a week now. The last few nights have been unbearable. My husband is looking in our health books right now and I am looking on the internet what I can do. This was the first remedy I came to. I went right to the vicks and rubbed it on my feet and threw some socks on. It surely can’t hurt to try. I am very anxious to see if it works. I will be back in the morning to post the results.

  12. I am surely going to try this right now and if it works, I surely will be back on here to let everyone know.

  13. Attempted this on my 2 year old son, just a waste of and time and a waste of money and I wasted a bout 3 minutes of my life posting this along with reading the websites. KUDOS to the non retartded.

  14. my son was coughing a lot at night and I did not have any cough medicines handy ! I rubbed vicks on his feet and put on some socks and made him lie on his side and within 5 minutes I did not hear any cough for atleast 5-6 hrs !!! thanks a lot !!!!

  15. Vick’s Does Work!!

  16. Just about to put this to the test.. Hope it works.i am due up for work in a few hrs,because of this caugh just cant sleep. Its drivin me mental!

  17. Tried it in desperation and it did nothing. My three year old went on coughing for hours.

  18. The vicks on the feet really works. I just tried it on my daughter and she stop coughing instantly. I put her to bed at 8:30pm it is now midnight. I wish I would have found this site earlier. So I just wanted to tell everyone that this is not a web hoax! It really works. Thanks!

  19. You have no idea how greatful I am for this advice. It pains me to see my child suffer and can not do a thing about it. been to the doctor, used the medicine and the caugh remained. Once i tried your advice, it worked beautifully and my child was able to sleep.

    I am glad to have found this site and Yes it does work. Thank you

  20. My wife has had a persistent non-stop cough for the past seven days. The Vicks vapor-rub worked a bit the first night, less on the 2nd. night and not at all on the third night and has not helped since.

    We are still searching……..

  21. wow it works!!

  22. My son has been coughing non stop and and nothing worked at all. I surfed the web because I had to do somthing and I found this post. It worked. He finally was able to sleep, and me too 🙂
    thank you very much, I’ll pass it to all my friends and family

  23. i`m reall gettin ready 2 try this on my 3 yr old.She has been coughin out of comtrol for 3 days. waking her own self out of her sleep;not to mention the whole family. I`m willing to try just about anything reasonable,just so we can get a good nights sleep. thanks for the tip..

  24. This is definately worth a try. My 3 year old daughter has had a persistent cough for the last 2 days and we were dreading another sleepless night. In desperation I searched the net for a remedy and found this site. I gave the vix on the feet a try and within 10 minutes her coughing had stopped and she is now fast asleep. THANKYOU!

  25. Works It is 1107 and he has been coughing since 730 when he went to bed. I tried this (not even name brand) and he is sleep and silent in less than 5 mins. Thanks I was at my wits end the cough meds were not working.

  26. This is an interesting idea. I noticed however, that just thinking about the warm vicks feeling on my feet eased the coughing. Perhaps it’s more to do with concentrating on a different part of your body (maybe best when it’s furthest from the irritation) until you stop noticing the niggling feeling in the throat?

    Haven’t tried it with actual vicks yet because we don’t have any in the house. Will get some tomorrow though to see how it compares! 🙂

  27. I used Vicks on my hubby when he was coughing non-stop and it stops as soon as I put in on his sole. Now I’m doing this to myself and hope it works for me too. I have been coughing non-stop for about a week now. The cough really interupts my life – keep me awake all night and the lung seems to burst out, not to mention the sore throat!
