Cold & Allergy


At the very first signs of a cold - that old, familiar tickle in your throat - we all know exactly what to expect: An irritated, runny nose that just won't stop and nasal skin made red, raw and itchy due to constant nose-blowing and wiping. After a short while, even the softest facial tissues can feel like sandpaper. As nasal passages become congested and swollen, breathing through your mouth makes lips chapped and painful - then, to top it off, one good sneeze can make already dry lips crack and bleed. It's no wonder common cold sufferers prefer to simple pull the covers over their head and try to sleep through it!

Head cold sufferers aren't the only ones who experience these types of nasal problems. For the nearly 40 million Americans suffering from seasonal nasal allergies, indoor nasal allergies or other environmental nasal allergies, these same symptoms can last for weeks or even months at a time! For many unlucky seasonal allergy sufferers, airborne tree, grass or plant pollens are often the culprits. For others, mold, mildew or dust from carpet or furniture can cause a runny, itchy nose and its accompanying irritations on a daily basis. Still others have year-round allergies to pet dander and other environmental factors.

One thing is certain: whether nasal irritation is due to common cold, or flu, or nasal allergies, blowing and wiping a sore, red nose all day is painful and frustrating, and most creams meant to moisturize the hands or body are not intended for use on already raw, tender facial skin.

While Boroleum® is not a cure for your cold, allergy or other disorder, it can help minimize suffering caused by cold or allergy symptoms! Boroleum®'s gentle, doctor-recommended formula soothes, moisturizes and protects nasal passages and skin made raw by wiping or blowing. Applied topically to these affected areas, just a little dab of Boroleum® helps relieve nasal redness, irritation and discomfort. Boroleum® soothes nasal discomfort and helps relieve itchy nasal passages. Boroleum® moisturizes cracked nasal skin at the tip of the nose, upper lip and around irritated facial skin. Boroleum® even soothes and protects dry, cracked, chapped lips caused by cold or allergy symptoms. 

Boroleum® is great for the whole family: Boroleum®'s ingredients are so mild and gentle it can safely be used for toddlers as young as two years old.
