Description

Polysporin Cold Sore Healing Patch uses hydrocolloid technology to effectively treat the cold sore. The patch forms a protective barrier that contains the virus and enables fast effective healing.

Directions for Use:  Apply POLYSPORIN® Cold Sore Healing Patch at first sign of an outbreak. When the patch starts to detach from the skin, remove it and replace it with a new one until cold sore is healed. Patches should be used 24 hours a day. On average, the patch will stay on for approximately 8 hours. You do not need to remove the patch every 8 hours, only when it begins to detach.

    fonctionne bien

    Avec les changements de saison et le rhume, j'ai souvent des feux sauvages a partir de l'automne. J'utilisais Abreva et cela me coutais très chère. J'ai essayer les petits timbres transparents de Polysporin. Si votre feux sauvage n'est pas trop gros cela fonctionne bien. J'avoue que la feuille ronde transparente n'est pas trop confortable, mais elle guérie vite et contient le liquide qui peux sortir du feux sauvage quand il guérie. Il reste plus abordable que plusieurs autres produits en magasin, mais mettra un petit peu plus de temps pour la guérison de 1 journée ou 2 environ.

    Doesn't quite match the hype

    Used this product. Has some pros, has some cons. Wanted to try it so I shelled out the cash. Value yeah I guess. Pros: fantastic at hiding/camouflaging a cold sore/fever blister as long as your lips are BONE DRY; does it actually speed up healing? Individual opinions will vary. Personally I didn't find that to be the case.
    Cons: can't lick your lips, wear lipstick, gloss, chapstick , drink or eat without constantly replacing. Your choice.

    Pricey

    It definitely gets the job done. I wish it wasn’t so expensive though as this stuff does not have a long expiry time. It is very convenient compare to the ointment. I like to put it on at night when I get a cold sore. It’s visibly reduced by the morning.

    Effective, but too expensive

    Not sure if it helps to heal faster, but definetely makes you look less gross. No one can tell if you're trying to hide a pimple or a cold sore. ;)
    It is quite expensive though...

    Just use lysine tablets w topical cream

    I've gotten cold sores throughout my life to varying degrees. They used to dominate my life until I started using lysine tablets which lessened their frequency almost entirely - which is to say that I no longer get them nearly as bad. I got a small one on my lip and tried this product as the drug store was out of abreva. Instead of 'hiding' the sore I found it just kind of made a 'look at this' bullseye around it. And at $25/pack I felt my money go down the drain immediately as I found I wasted at least 2 patches in the process of trying to apply them, the applicator is impractical and difficult to use. I believe the only reason the sore has diminished quickly is bc of my lysine use. No short cut around cold sores that I know of, other than that. This product is just aggravating - I never post product reviews and felt the need to about this one out of frustration.

    Pas une médicament mais une bonne protection

    Il s'agit d'un bon produit afin de couvrir le feux sauvage et ainsi éviter qu'il se répande. Je l'utilise le jour, sous le maquillage, et la nuit afin d'éviter de la gratter dans mon sommeil. Lorsqu'on le porte, le feu sauvage pique moins et il est plus facile de se concentrer dans les tâches quotidiennes. Le seul hic est le prix: c'est environ 25$ pour 18 timbres.

    Not wow !

    Il fait le travail mais rien de diffèrent des autres produits pour les feux sauvages. Aide à guerir mais pas d'une façon rapide et souper efficace. le maquillage ne tombe pas à perfection dessous.

    I won't buy this again

    Product is not as great as it seems and is not worth the price you pay. You can still see the coldscores and it does not take the away faster if anything it seems longer.

    Meh

    I get cold sores all the time usually brought on by stress, using too many facial products, thinking about cold sores etc. (I am very prone to them) I have had them since I was born pretty much and I have tried everything under the sun. I had gotten this hoping it would help but kinda made it worse. I made my cold sore larger and a lot more gross looking. It actually took longer for it to heal and I had to go to my Dermatologist to get medication for it. Crappy it didn't work.

    Best find ever

    This product has saved me. I don't personally get cold sores on my lips. I get them on my chin and forehead and this really disguises the cold sore. I used to be so embarrassed about it and now, people don't really see it. They see something but it most definitely does not look so intense at all. I used to hide and now, with these, I feel much better about myself. Only problem is that they are SO expensive
