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.

    Love these cold sore patches!

    I suffer with cold sores when the weather changes seasons and saw a commercial that you could use this patch and cover with make up so I thought I would give it a go.

    Price: pretty high to be honest. Especially as I had to use a few patches for one application. Not because the cold sore was huge but because the first one creased as I was opening it and stuck together it looked terrible on. The second was way too big when I was trying to cover it all too could see was a huge circle.
    The third time lucky! I cut the patch in half and then took that backing off. Once in place I could build up my make up and cover it!
    My cold sore didn’t get bigger and once the patch started to fall away (the next day) I replaced it. And followed suit for 3 days. No scab formed and it was healed fully within 4 days! Incredible. And I wasn’t hiding my face away embarrassed. I always have an energy pack in my bag. Just in case!!

    The best cold sore treatment for me

    When I start to feel that tingle...I put one on and it stops it in its tracks and I don't even get a cold sore. I love them so much I hope the never take them off the market.
    One thing is take the wrapping off and just apply to stop or you may waste one following there instructions.

    i will buy this product again. I like to have some on hand

    I like that the patch hides the cold sore so I am less self conscious during an out break. Wish they would stay on longer. Until you get the hang of it they at first they are a little difficult to apply. a must have before the cold/flue season starts.

    Worked amazing

    I couldn't believe how good the Healing Patch worked !! Usually i have a hard time getting rid of my cold sores which i get at least every few months !! I even went to work with the patch on my sore and no one knew i was wearing one, these things are amazing and i will never go back to my usual product.

    Very discreet & stays put!

    Easy to use and apply. It sticks very well and isn’t too noticeable. It feels like it is working although it didn’t seem to speed up the healing. I love that it took away the painful part of the blistering. Easy to carry in patch form and no spillage. Would use it again.

    Life saver

    A few years back i was uaing abreva, to only have the cold sore spread, every time. Then I tried these patches, they hide it just enough that i don't have to feel self conscious about what people may think. I find it heals up pretty quickly when following the directions.

    Effective, but patch falls off quite easily

    This product is quite expensive and it seems to be working in the treatment of cold sores. That being said, the patch does fall off easily especially if you have one close to your mouth. I saw a video where it was demonstrated you can even put makeup over this patch without being noticeable, however that is simply not true.

    WORKS LIKE A CHARM

    i used these on the first onset of any feeling of a cold sore, i believe it did diminish the duration of my cold sore, I usually have them for a week or better, but this time it was less than a week.

    Helps

    Where I live these are $2 per patch but they do close the sore to help reduce pain. They may reduce healing time by a little. I am not 100% sold on these. I buy them if I get a cold sore and have an important function to attend, otherwise I just use home remedies.

    Not worth the money

    First off, these little cold sore patches are extremely expensive for what you actually get. While they do a good job in initially concealing the cold sore, you'll find that you will need to keep replacing them every hour or so as they tend to peel away from the lip (and guys, if you have facial hair even a little stubble under the lip these will not adhere properly and you will need to shave under your lip to have it properly adhere)
