Zoline Plus Eye Drop Questions

My Doctor prescribed to buy OPTICOOL Eye Drops. Which contains Naphazoline + Phenylephrine + Menthol + Camphor. I have an Eye Drops of RECOOL PLUS. Which have the same composition. But in RECOOL PLUS there is one extra Composition is added. I.e Carboxymethylcellulose. So can I use the Recool Plus Eye Drops instead of Opticool Eye Drops.?

How to prepare Camphor oil at home as camphor is available in the market as a solid crystal only.
Heat two cups of coconut oil in the saucepan on medium heat, stirring occasionally so it doesn't burn. Add 2 tablespoons of ground camphor crystals to the heated oil. Stir the powdered crystals into the coconut oil until completely dissolved. Remove the warm coconut oil and dissolved camphor crystals from the stove.

There is no medical proof and is only an unexplained rumour that we should not use soap and talcum powder with menthol and there is no connection between all.

Don't wash your hair more than twice a week if you have thick, curly, or coarse hair. Too much washing strips the hair of its natural oils, which can make it dry and frizzy. Let's discuss your problem in detail for better advice and healthy lifestyle.
