Reports so far have indicated that at least one child in Canada has had a seizure after chewing on one of the patches, which contained camphor, eucalyptus oil and menthol. It is explained on the Triaminic Vapour Patch label to stick the patches on the throat or chest to allow the vapours to reach the nose and mouth.

Experts explain that after being applied, the patch due to its attractive cherry scent was very attractive and desirable for the children remove and ingest, and young children may highly be likely to do so. This product is available over counters as a natural health product at pharmacies and retail outlets in Canada.
