In brief: Sure, within reason

All that will happen is it may begin to lose its consistency, and effectiveness for reducing sensitivity.
If it is well above 86 degrees, who knows what effectiveness will remain. Check with manufacturer on that. Good Luck.

In brief: Lost Effectiveness

It probably won't harm you, but it may not help you either. A new, fresh tube won't set you back that much.
.. probably worth the couple of dollars to buy a new tube.
