Directions to follow:
Before going to bed, apply a thick layer of Vicks to your feet. Massage in for five minutes and then put on cotton socks. Wash feet with warm water the following morning.
Vicks contains camphor, eucalyptus and menthol in a turpentine oil base. ‘This type of ointment is very emollient so will trap in any moisture, while the menthol and eucalyptus will be cooling,’ explains Dr Khan.
‘Around seven years ago someone found Vicks was effective at tackling fungal nail infections, which are notoriously difficult to clear up. We’re not exactly sure why, but the theory is that it contains an ingredient that works on types of fungi that cause these infections,’ says Dr Khan as quoted on Dailymail.
