I applied it to my pyjamas and pillowcase rather than directly to my skin

I used it too when pregnant the midwife said I could use but told me to avoid olbas oil for some reason but yes Vicks is fine.

Yep totally safe to use, your could take a bath in it if you wanted to, I was plastered in the stuff when I had a child when I was pregnant and my toddler had a cold too.I also put it with warm water in a bowl and inhaled it. Had it on my chest and husband ruined it on my back. We also used the Vicks plug in and a humidifier which both helped. Hope you feel better soon.
