RE: Is it safe to use Vicks Vapor Rub during pregnancy?
I am currently 11 weeks pregnant and have severe common cold congestion. Would like know if its safe to use Vicks Vapor Rub during pregnancy?? Is it safe to dab a little on my upper lip just to help ease my breathing during sleep??
I'm 26 weeks an 2 days pregnant an I have used it the whole time. I have asthma so it helps me sleep. My dr knows I use it an they never told me not to... so I would say that its safe. I'm high risk so if it was not safe they would have told me asap. I have found that a vicks vaporizer helps too. I hope this helps. Anita
Thanks for responding Anita!! I really appreciate it. Congratulations on getting to 26 weeks of pregnancy!! I hope I'll be able to get to that stage too. I lost my first one at 9 weeks last July. I'm really praying hard to get through this first trimester. Best of health to you and your baby- Gemma
