I don’t think that it would hurt nor help.

I guess that could help a little. But, not as good as Vick’s.

Just chew on some Vick’s Vaporub. It’ll taste great, I swear!

[Edit] Aww, damn you @erichw1504!

Altoids aren’t gum, but chew on four of those and your nasal congestion is gone!

for like 20 seconds.

Wasabi is pretty good for that.

Also, rubbing Vick’s all over the body is an amazing sensation!

All joking aside, nothing (and I mean nothing) clears out the sinuses like some good ol’ green chile.

I chew spearmint gum and helps my runny nose. But it doesn’t help my throat.

@jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities chewing up a raw red jalapeno works pretty well.
