    allright. so i found out if you take vicks and rub it directly on the bottoms of your feet that it goes directly to your lungs. pretty cool if you ask me. feels reeelly good.

    Oh yeah I had it on my hands once and went to take a leak. That'll clear your sinuses too!

    Also burns like hell on the back of your neck and the top of your ass crack.

    im sure it probly might help. the back of the box says for use for coughing relief and temporarily relieves muscle joint pain and stiffness. doesnt say it might help with athletes foot ya never know. id give it a try.

    Is the stuff you got fresh? I've noticed it loses its heat after time on the shelf.

    I used my GFs cold cream stuff to stop the burn. Helped but I'll still be watching where it ends up from now on.

    Are you talking about the "Improved" icy hot? I tried that stuff after I got out opf the shower. I was still wet and after I put it on, I thought I was on fire. I seriously screamed "oh shit!", ran out of the house and into the pool. :eek:
