Camphor products for protection from nose dryness and bad bacteria and viruses:

I have been using either Vick's or Mentholatum ointment products that contain camphor for many, many years. When I blow my nose, I insert a small amount and either on into my nostrils to moisturize the interior and to provide protection against bad bacteria and viruses that might invade my body via the nose. I am rarely sick and will continue to use for the remainder of my life.

In the late fifties while in the army, I came down with herpes. After diagnosis, the army doctor recommended camphor spirits applied to lesions. It worked and I have never passed it on. Still use it along with new meds.

Camphor was used in Canada to create a product called 714 X and although it was successful in treating cancer, there was a huge battle between the Dr. who was using this method and the CMA in Canada.
