“ / Type: Coughs, Colds & Flu „
Only wish you could still buy them!My child has a mycroplasm pneumonia and they have really helped him to breathe through his congestion.
I love the Triaminic Vapor Patch! I am very upset that they have recalled them.... My son who is now 4 years old has been using them since he was 2. I can not get him to take any oral meds so these were a blessing! I hate that they are realled we need them back on the market with flu season coming!
I have used the triaminic menthol scented vapour patches on all my girls aged 7,4,and 2 1/2 I loved them, all the menthol none of the greasy mess,The directions read apply patch to the throat or chest, This was a problem getting off in the morning because when you are sick you sweet and sweet makes sticky things harder to get off,So I applyed to patch to their p.j's and this was a great idea.The problem I now have is I can't bye them any more... I think if kids were eating these VERY STICKY patches maybe the kids were to young,not being watched close enough, or da they did'nt like them stuck on their skin.Would you?
My wife and I occasionally used this product for ourselves. We first heard about it in several fitness magazines and decided to give it a try. The product was great. You could stick it on and have all of the soothing qualities of a vapor rub without the mess.
Unfortunately, this product has been recalled. For some strange reason, they decided to make a cherry-scented version. Kids being kids, someone was dumb enough to chew on one which resulted in adverse effects. So, rather than figuring it was Darwinism in action, Triaminic has recalled the product, depriving those of us who actually had the sense to not put these things in our mouth.
Hopefully they will be re-released as an adult version.
I'm so thrill that Triaminic has came out with such a patch that will quiet coughs.My little girl has caught the cold bug from me and was in need of something to help sooth her coughing. While I was at Super Wal-mart looking in the medicine section looking for her some Triamininc.Now, I'm a big fan of Triaminic. I have used Triaminic products on both of my children.They have always seemed to like the great taste of the variety of flavors that Triaminic offers.It has always seemed to work better for them than any other. These little patches are about 2 inches wide by 4 inches long.They put off vapors that will soooth the coughing and also help in the breathing .You can place up two patches on your child.If your child has a sore throat and chest congestion, you can place one on his throat and one on his chest. It contains two active ingredients in each little patch- Camphor with 4.7% Cough suppressant Menthol 2.6% Cough suppressant What are the patches for? Well, it says on the back of each patch packet.Temporarily relieves; cough due to cold,cough due to minor throat and brochial irritation, cough to help you sleep. Always make sure that the place where you put the patch is clean and doesn't have any sores.Make sure your child has loose fitting clothes on , so the vapors will have easier access to the nostrils, mouth and throat. This Triaminic Vapor Patch has helped my daughter get through most of the night without coughing.I recommend you trying this for your child who is having problems sleeping at night because of the coughs.
