Vicks VapoRub can harm children under 2

I saw this in the news this morning.

It kind of shook me, because I have used the product for years.

But it almost sounds like common sense not to use it products designed for adults on kids that young.

"Vicks VapoRub, a common cold remedy, can cause respiratory distress in children under 2 when inappropriately applied directly under the nose, U.S. researchers said on Tuesday.
They said using the Procter & Gamble Co product in this way can cause a young child's tiny airways to swell and fill with mucus, triggering severe breathing problems."
