    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.

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

      A Doctor friend recommended it when she noticed my lips were chapped. I am on my third tube. The one drawback, is that my Boyfriend dislikes the smell and refuses to kiss me if I am wearing it. Of course, I do not wear it when we are together.
      But, it works on my Lips and I am delighted.

          I have been using this product for over 50 years. I use it nightly when the heat is on in the house to keep my nasal passages from drying out and whenever I am congested to restore easy breathing.

                This is an absolutely fantastic product to use to stop dry/itching nasal passages. The menthol may be a little strong to deal with at first, BUT IT WORKS!!! Expect to use this product 3-4 times a day at first, but as time goes on probably only 2x a day.

                  Very effective at relieving soreness from nose -blowing helps the area to heal quickly. Also helps relieve the sore splits on fingers from working in the cold during the winter months.

                        I live in the high altitude Rocky Mountains and its dry, dry air. I've used boreleum for years to combat the dryness in my nose - it's the ONLY thing that works!

                          This is an excellent product for anyone with allergies or whose nasal tissues dry out in winter. I love it for air travel, since a cabin environment is always arid. I'm glad the tube is small enough to meet TSA standards.
