Possibly: If the expiration date is somewhere is the last year probably. Why are using them again? If you are using them again with out having seen the doctor , I would not do that. If you are using them with his /her advice then go ahead. If you are going to use them, do not use them longer than five days without improvement. If the condition still exist see your doctor of ir there is pain or swelling also
