The dangers of misuses of the Vicks VapoRub ointment, which some sites or blogs relay, have led patients to the hospital.
The more or less natural remedies that cure miraculously are all the more popular because confidence in traditional medicines is eroding. The tips to ensure health and well-being multiply all over the place while for many, simply lead a healthy life seems less and less possible. And the Internet serves as a relay for innumerable idiots. The regional pharmacovigilance center of Nord-Pas-de-Calais reports in its last bulletin a misuse of the Vicks VapoRub. This very popular ointment is officially approved as a decongestant in the body.
