What is Snufflebabe Vapour Rub?
Snufflebabe Vapour Rub is an effective yet mild decongestant using the following active ingredients:
- Eucalyptus oil
- Thyme oil
How does this vapour rub work?
This vapour rub works by the vapours in the ingredients getting through the nasal passages and breaking down the blockage in the nose and helps your child breathe better.
Who is it suitable for?
Snufflebabe Vapour Rub is suitable for babies and children aged from 3 months. If your baby is under 3 months of age, consult your doctor before using. Do not use the vapour rub if your child has an allergic reaction towards any of the ingredients or has any broken skin, or around the nostrils.
How do I use Snufflebabe Vapour Rub?
For babies, rub the solution on the chest or throat, and keep it away from their eyes. For older children, it is recommended that bedclothes stay loose for that the vapour has time to work through the nasal passages as they sleep.
An alternative method of use for small children is to put the vapour rub onto a handkerchief or tissue and tie it near to the crib, just out of the reach of the child.
Are there any side effects?
As with any medicine, there is a chance of side effects occurring. If your child does suffer from a side effect, then contact your doctor as soon as possible. You can also report any side effect using the MHRA Yellow Card scheme. For more information, check out the website.
Is a prescription required?
No, no prescription is required.
