Polysporin Cold Sore Healing Patch Reviews
#1 in Remedies

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.

    Maybe not using it properly!?

    They did not adhere properly and was blatantly visible.
    Furthermore I did not find them to help with healing time at all
    Not sure if I used them properly but they were too large and slid right off

    Maybe I’m not using them correctly

    I have purchased these twice for use on orofacial cold sores. I applied the patches as directed. Unfortunately, they did not work well. They came off extremely easily (minimal sweat/oil despite swabbing the area and ensuring it was dry first) and I went through the package of 20 in a few days. I think I will stick with prescription topical aycyclovir as I find it to be much more effective.

    Not worth it

    When this product came out i was so excited to try it . I was almost positive it would be effective since I already trust the Polysporin brand. Boy was I sadly disappointed big time, it was difficult to apply and immediately started falling off. I tried many times but had the same results, the moment It got a bit wet it just peeled off.

    Didn’t work as well as they advertised

    Easy to work with. And they say as soon was it starts coming off to replace it with a new one. Well it’s always peeling off after you do anything eat, smile ,laugh. I went though most of the package on the first day. And the product it self is pricey. It didn’t work well with me. So I won’t be purchasing it again I would rather use the cream and reapply the cream as needed

    Not a big fan

    I'm unfortunate to get a cold sore usually around fall. Same place and around the same time yearly on my upper lip. Very embarising, people know what it is. I liken the use of trying to conceal the cold sore whole it heals but the product does not stay in place, falls off shortly after applying. I have found another product where i apply it as soon as i feel the tingle and I'm lucky enough not to have it even blister.. gone within 4-5days

    Don’t waste your money

    When you have a cold sore this is not what it needs. It needs air to heal along with medicated cream, polysporin cream works wonders but this piece of plastic made me even more self conscious and just didn’t stay in place and didn’t heal as fast as the cream alone

    not as effective as commercials would have you think

    I got these to try with a cold sore, I found they were difficult to put on often not going on right on the first try hence wasting a few in the package with application making it even more pricey then it already was. While the competitors I found went on easier theirs swelled with moisture and did not stick as well as this brand but any moisture on them they tend to lift and fall off and around the mouth not so great thing to happen.Not sure I would buy again while it felt a little protected with the difficulty of application as if there is a wrinkle it lifts easily and the cost very torn on practicality and cost of it. Better then competitors version but still a far cry from being something to rave over.

    These are definitely what you need for cold soreS!!!! They cover it and the patch makes your face feel so nice and you even forget the cold sore is there. I hate having cold sores so these make me feel half decent to go into town with one

    Effective

    This has been a staple in our family. I especially use this on the first sign of cold sore, to make sure it doesn’t get worse, and this product has proven to be effective!
