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 product is great for a dry nostril. It keeps moist to help avoid bloody noses. It helps with congestion. I have used it for a long time and keep it accessible to use daily. I keep a backup on my shelf. I would recommend to everyone.

              I lived in Colorado for two years, and since that time I've had nasal dryness and the occasional nose bleed. I use Boroleum daily throughout the year, and it does a wonderful job relieving nasal dryness.

                  Have used this product for over 20 years - put a very small amount with a Q-tip up each nostril morning, noon and night - prevents nasal night nosebleeds due to heat/air-conditioning, opens up nasal passages, best product EVER. Have given it to friends who used to suffer from night nosebleeds from dryness, never again.

                      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.
