Is it safe to use a decongestant on baby? There have been reports specifically for the ingredients contained in Vicks Vapor Rub that have been found to cause irritation. Most notably, the ingredient menthol has been found to create increased inflammation to the air passage way, and is not recommended for babies. Our babies own chest rub does not contain the ingredient menthol, or other harsh ingredients. Instead, we use herbs and essential oils that have been used traditionally to help support the respiratory system and are gentle for use specifically on baby.
Can a decongestant be applied under baby’s nose? It is recommended to use a decongestant under babyâs nose sparingly. The recommended use is no more than 3 to 4 times in 24 hours. A good time to use a decongestant under the nose would be if baby is having trouble breastfeeding due to congestion.
