I warned, a few days ago, about fibro sufferers buying Puffs with a 'hint' of Vicks.  Blowing your nose with one of these is akin to rooting around up there with a Q Tip soaked in BenGay.  I threw the box in the trash.
 
In the middle of the night I got up to let the dog out and grabbed a tissue from the spare bedroom.  Then one more.  Within moments...Meat Locker Face.  It seems the Husband took them out of the garbage because, well...they are two bucks a box and he would use them. Never in 20 years have I seen him blow his nose with a tissue...he uses handkerchiefs. 
 
Sherrine...I tried Olay like you suggested.  Three different handsoaps including the one with the volcano pumice in it...Lava?  Yipes, that smarted.  And Dawn, which will dissolve three day old ham fat.
 
I have decided Vicks is systemic like nose drops or anything else you put against your muscus membranes.  I'll just duke the 'packed in dry ice' sensation for yet another day.
 
There are those of you who are REALLY suffering today.  My heart goes out to you all.  This disorder sucks. (am I allowed to say that?)

Sherrine..you are a genious!  This I will do!  I want to warn you however, that you have to read the toilet paper packages carefully also.  I actually saw some in a chain store in NC that has hemmoroid(spelling?) cream in them for those whose lives are just too chaotic to spend three microseconds to grabging the tube of Preparation H. off the back of the toilet.  Imagine THAT up your nose!

I think you are right about the Vicks being systemic because you can put it on the soles of your feet and stop a hacking cough in 10 minutes..and it will stay stopped for hours and hours without cough medication to dull your in my case already dull brain. I think it is the eucalyptus oil rather than the menthol, but it absolutely does work. DH has COPD with chronic bronchitis and emphysema and it will stop his hacking dead in its tracks.
Its NOT denial..Its selective reality!

I HAVE rubbed it on my face!  Really, a friend and I tried it and it does shrink the wrinkles!  We did this, however, after drinking a bottle of wine and eating an entire box of Mallomars. Ah, the good ole days before fibro and everyone knew their own name.

And bridgewitch, thanks for confirming my notion that Vicks is systemic.  I had that icy-hot feeling all over my body for an entire day.

Hahahahaha, I'm laughing so hard I just farted a stinker!  You guys are so funny!
 
Have you ever tried cleaning your glasses with one of those "puffs" with lotion kleenex's?  I did, and couldn't for the life of me figure out why my glasses were getting coated in gunk.  It was the lotion in the kleenex! 
 
I always blow my nose with toilet paper. I'm going to be warry of the hemmoroid possiblility now!! Sheesh!
 
Have a good night!

Unbelievable! The coupon website I mentioned on another thread here just this evening? Well, there was a thread there about the Prep H wipes that are free or nearly free with a coupon available on the Prep H site. You can find a travel size at Walmart - not in the travel section, but on the regular shelves with the rest of the Prep H products.

List of uses there:

Take the camping - use as substitute for TP
Yep, prep H does shrink wrinkles - movie stars have used the stuff for ages!
Use as a waterless face wipe - acts as an astrigent on the skin

And someone posted that there was no way they were using a butt wipe on their face!! I can just imagine suggesting that one to my two teeanage daughters!

It was good for a chuckle about this time last night - and now I'm wondering what the message is for me in all this talk about preparation H!!!!
