What does vicks mean?

Vicks
Vicks is a brand of over-the-counter medications owned by the American company Procter & Gamble. Vicks manufactures NyQuil and its morning sister medication, DayQuil. The Vicks brand also produces Formula 44 cough medicines, cough drops, Vicks VapoRub, and a number of inhaled breathing treatments. For much of its history, Vicks products were manufactured by the family-owned company Richardson-Vicks, Inc. based in Greensboro, North Carolina. Richardson-Vicks, Inc. was eventually sold to Procter & Gamble in 1985. In Japan the product is distributed by Taisho pharmaceutical but is manufactured by P&G in India. In German-speaking countries, the brandname Vicks was changed to Wick in order to avoid possible sexual connotations linked to Vicks or Vick. In Spanish-speaking countries, the brand name is changed to Vick.
