For the past couple of weeks, the whole family has been going through ups and downs with a cold. Either one would get it and one would come out of a cold but the cycle would repeat, over and over again. Right now Andrea has had a runny nose for a couple of weeks and Josh would be on and off. Kaden has already been sick for about a week and I have a runny nose now too.
While talking to my friend Julia, I told her about Vick’s Vapo Rub and how it doesn’t seem to be working for our family. It used to work really well for us back when we were in Singapore. But I don’t know if it’s the weather here in Seoul or the haze but, it just doesn’t work. Then Julia mentioned Euky Bearub.
Apparently, every mommy in Korea knows about this and is really famous for its fast relief of cold symptoms.
I searched for it online and the fastest way to get it was to order it online from Australia.
Then I did some more research and found a seller on coupang.com that had some in stock, in Korea and could ship a tube out to me in two days.
It comes in a clear solid gel type format. In a tube, that looks like toothpaste. It’s similar to Vicks Vapo Rub and smells like it too. However, this works faster. Vicks usually takes a bit of time after the kids fall asleep for it to start working and for the kids to start breathing comfortably. But this takes a bout two to three minutes after applying on the chest.
It can also be used for muscle aches and bug bites.
