Relieve Itchy Skin
If you have itchy skin, such as from poison plants, VapoRub is a lifesaver. Apply a little bit of the ointment to the affected area. It should stop the itch quickly and reduce puffiness and redness because of the menthol and camphor. Make sure to take a jar with you while camping!
Sometimes, we end up getting splinters in our feet or fingers. While tweezers are designed to remove them, they could be lodged in there good. VapoRub might help. Put some on the area, and the moisture draws out the splinter without pain.
