    Although it was just a minor problem, Boroleum has actually improved the quality of my life. The inside of my nose used to get dry and sore frequently, sometimes, enough to keep me up at night. I put some Boroleum in at night and it doesn't happen anymore. My nose also heals faster when it does get sore. I also use it before travelling on a plane, which can dry out the nose, and before I swim, when water can rush up the nose. It protects against some of the discomforts in both cases.

    I also think, although I don't have the means to really know for sure, that it helps to protect against airborne illnesses. Perhaps by having a better protected nose, I am not as susceptible. I say this because I have had very few colds in the last 3 or 4 years, since I started using it. One never knows whether that was the cause, but logically it makes sense to me, at least.

    The only downside is the taste, on the -relatively rare - occasions that it seeps into the back of my throat.

    I very highly recommend it.

    I purchased Boroleum to diagnose the itchiness of move nasal passages. I've had a long term problem with dry nasal passages and was using vaseline petroleum for several years but found it would do very little to alleviate the symptoms. Boroleum worked for a few months but then it seems to have the same problems with vaseline after over long periods of use. Initially I found there was little or no itchiness with dry nasal passages but soon I had trouble breathing and was blowing my nose almost immediately after applying Boroleum. This nullifies the effectiveness of the product if I have to blow my nose and all cream is wiped off into the tissue. I also had trouble breathing as the cream somehow blocked my nasal passages even after applying only a little.

      This is difficult to find at brick-and-mortar stores so it's wonderful that it's always available here! I use it to moisturize my nose since I have so many allergies - very soothing and helps open nasal passages up.

        Place a small amount on finger tip and insert into nostril. Immediate relief from dry nose and caking mucous. Opens up breathing passages with a little menthol kick.every friend I introduced to Boroleum is a firm believer.

          Comments about Boroleum External Analgesic/Skin Protectant, .6 oz:

          We are using this product to alleviate pain and discomfort in our developmentally disabled daughter's nose. She would constantly rub and irritate the area around her nostrils to the point of causing bleeding. The Boroleum prevents the tissues inside her nose from drying out and becoming sore. It also prevents the discharge from her nose from drying out and becoming difficult to remove, which also causes pain and irritation. So far we have found no side effects with this product.

            While living in CO my nasal passages would dry out from the lack of humidity, and this was the only product which helped. I live in the South now, and unfortunately the dry nasal passages came with me. Boroleum still resolves the problem, and also helps with inflammation during spring pollen season. Excellent product.

              I use this to soothe dry nasal passages and chapped lips. It is excellent for use during nighttime congestion, for irritated skin, cold sores or even for minor burns. It is long lasting and works well as a skin lubricant. I never travel without a tube of Boroleum.

                I use this product a couple of times a day - for nasal congestion - apply a small amount on the tip of a Q-tip and place up nostril carefully as far as you can go. Prevents nosebleeds from dry stagnant air, opens up air passages. Couldn't live without it - have been using it for over 30 years.

                  I use Boroleum twice a day to protect my nose/sinus cavity from getting dried out and sore due to air conditioner use. Boroleum works great, is easy to use, and has a terrific scent. Therefore, I use it religiously.
