I put Vick’s vapor rub under my nose

I put a generic Vick’s vapor rub under my nose then I saw you shouldn’t do that I quickly washed it off with soap and water. Will I be OK or will I get any symptoms or take further action ?

Hi

It will be fine, especially because you washed it off quickly. The fumes can be overwhelming and cause a severe reaction if you inhale it directly like that (under your nose), that is why it is safer to rub it on your chest. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon.
