Smell coming from Vicks

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
My question is about the smell that comes from Vicks [i.e., Vicks Vaporub, used externally to relieve headaches]. Does it have any substance that reaches the stomach when I apply the Vicks in the area of the forehead and nose whilst fasting?.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.

The smell that comes from Vicks does not have any effect on the fast, because it is simply a smell that has no substance that can reach the stomach.

And Allaah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
