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.

    Never again

    This concept of a product is absolutely amazing. Unfortunately the actual functionality and result are horrible! These just made my cold sore bigger and took longer to heal. I found the contagious liquid of my cold sore just got trapped or became so much that the patch would come off. Never again. My experience was one of nothing but more disappointment than the healing I needed.

    Made sore worse.

    This product did not work for me. I found that it only made it worse and held all the contagious fluid inside the sticker which resulted in a larger cold score. It's a nice idea but sadly did not work. At least in my occasion.

    Nope not for me

    These are quite pricy and I e had no luck with them. I’m able to feel the cold sore coming on and I’ve used it without effect. They are nicely camouflaged to the skin but not effective at all.

    Awful!

    I get a lot of cold sores, they’re agonising and gross. I tried these patches and it just made it worse. I started off with a small blister and ended up with a perfect circle of blisters exactly the same size as the patch.

    Normally I clean my cold sores with salt water and then apply aciclovir cream a few times a day (don’t bother with Zovirax, it’s really overpriced. Use a generic aciclovir cream from a supermarket or £1 shop or pharmacy - they are all identical and much cheaper). The salt water really helps as salt will kill literally any microorganism, even viruses.

    My routine usually works fine, I only used the patches as I wanted to cover up the cold sore. It didn’t work, obviously. The patch is really visible and obviously you can’t cover it with makeup because it’s plastic. It also doesn’t help if you get cold sores in really awkward places, such as your nose. Basically I had a really bad experience with patches and would advise you not to waste your money.

    Would not recommend

    It’s like a sticker that gets loose easily if or when you talk, eat or drink & it pulls your sore when removed, which for me, made it worse. It’s also expensive for what it is. Would not recommend. I won’t be buying it again.

    I would not buy again

    I purchased this the last time I had a cold sore and I followed the instructions to a tee and did not find this helped at all. My cold sore remained for at least a week.

    Just won't stick

    Bought these for my 11 year old boy as he keeps getting cold sores. They're hard to even unstick from the backing paper/plastic but once you apply them they fall off the moment he moves his mouth. I suppose if the cold sores were elsewhere, I might have a different experience but as it is, we've tried them on 5 different occasion and none have stayed on more than an hour. We're sticking with creams.

    Nope

    Nothing beats zoverax. Its not any products fault; just doesn't have the same pharmaceutical ingredients. Cold sore creams are a gimmick and if you have the herpes virus just deal with it and try not to spread the virus

    Not for me

    Unfortunately for me this product didn’t work. It hurt a lot to take it off, and when it would come off it would pull skin and create a scab or make the problem worse.
