My dr gave me this ointment for dry nasal passages w staph. It helps extremely well but I am using it deeper and now for a year. It has solved my bloody noses and severe ear blockage but insert says do not use internally. Dr is not concerned using it so much and I have had no side effects. Should I be concerned?
