For colds and sore throats, it just has to be VapoRub. For cuts, scrapes, and bruises, it just has to be VapoRub. And for upset stomach, constipation, or diarrhea, it just has to be VapoRub. VapoRub is the minty, smelly, slimy cure-all for the Latino household. It is actually made of the same stuff Vaseline is made of, so it does make sense that it would handle the same scrapes and cuts. But modern medicine has no idea about all of the uses Latino households have found for this stuff. It helps pimples, it cures allergies. If Latino houses had first aid kits, they would only need one family-sized tub of VapoRub.
