Is garlic and ginger safe in pregnancy. I am 5 weeks. Pregnant. And is Vicks vaporub and white tigerbalm harmful during this time. Please advice.?
No vaporub: Rather than using vaporub I would recommend using a topical antihistamine. This is usually fairly effective with the itch. You can also take oral antihistamines like zyrtec or clariton to get relief. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) may help but many people get tired. This may help you at night. ...Read more

Vicks: Vicks is a popular remedy for many problems including toenail fungus- it has been shown in studies to have mild antifungal properties, but it is mostly ineffective for toenails. There are no studies that show it is effective against the verucca virus. However, any product has a slight chance of working as a placebo effect. ...Read more

Wash: Gently wash around the eye with mild soap and water. You may try irrigating the eye with water, eye irrigation or wetting soluiton and then observe.

Is it saf to use Vicks vaporub durin pregnancy? Made of menthol eucalyptus & camphor. Hubby rubs it on toddler & I can smell it sometimes. Harm my baby?
Doubt harm...but...: I consider this a form of avoidable air pollution that has no value in kids below school age if then. It mimics practices of indigenous cultures that used sap of pine trees to scent the moist steam in sweat lodges. Its effects are more tradition & assumption than real. I find it makes kids cough more. ...Read more
Dr oz recommends Vicks vaporub or vinegar solution for nail fungus. Are they effective at all? How about tea tree oil?
Hogwash: First off, make certain your nails are fungal with a fungus culture. If they are, the most effective treatment is oral anti-fungal medication, which has been recently shown to be much safer than we originally thought. Pulse therapy Lamisil (terbinafine) (14 pills in 6 months) has the same cure rate as taking it every day for 3 months. See a podiatrist and be leery of doctors on tv. ...Read more
Yes: Safe. Not likely effective though.Get a more detailed answer ›
We have a 15 mo old with a cold/cough. We were thinking about using vick vapor rub on his chest before he went to bed. Is that okay?
If you want, but: The vapor rubs are a fall back to rather old practices done at a time when we had little to offer in treatments. Aboriginal cultures still use them, along with cupping or coin rubbing. I consider such rubs as air pollution & as likely to set off a cough as to help it. If the kid enjoys your company the process can be therapeutic, but there is no reproducible evidence that they work. ...Read more
