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.

    Wouldnt buy again

    Doesn’t help heal my cold sores, just helps prevent spreading the virus. Normal tape would be just as effective. Wouldn’t purchase this again, although it might work better for others.

    Not my cup of tea

    I suffer from cold sores quite frequently and like many people - I try to hide it and get rid of them as fast as possible. I saw commercials and read reviews that these patches were a life saver - they just didn’t work for me :(. Maybe they will work better for someone else!

    I wouldn't purchase this again honestly.

    The patches are massive, don't stay flush on your lip, and it makes the healing process longer and it peels and cracks the cold sore when you have to remove it.

    They wouldn't stay on!

    I bought these a while back when I was job searching. I thought it would be easy and simple to use. However these patches were nightmares! I could get them to stick to my sore one bit! I legit went through about 4 in one day of interviews. For the price I was upset they didn't stick. Because they didn't stick they did nothing!

    Not worth the money

    I suffer regularly with cold sores and my lips are completely scarred due to them. I tried these patches to try and heal them quicker and sooth the itching and burning. These patches are useless and do nothing but make it look like I've stuck cellotape on my face. The patches kept slipping off making me worry all it was going to do was make the coldsore spread.

    I would not recommend this product

    As a person who gets cold sores every year. I have tried everything, including this product. It does not work, it pulls at your cold sore when trying to take it off. And you cannot wear lipstick over it like the commercial advertises.

    Not for me!

    I have been getting cold sores since I was a young girl, at least 6 or 7 years old. Usually I get 2 or more a year and I just dread them. I bought these with high hopes as I haven't gotten much relief from the products I have tried over the years, and these weren't for me, I didn't feel like they did anything to relieve the pain or speed up the process for me, it still took 2 weeks to go away. I prefer a prescription from my doctor.

    Not the best

    Cold sores have been a reoccurring thing For me since I was 5. Finding the right product is important, unfortunately for me, the polysporin patch has not been effective. It took weeks for my cold sore to heal. Your better of getting a prescription from the doctor.

    Not for me

    I use to struggle around fall season with cold sores and they had been painful to see and have.


    I used this product on many different occasions and found it did not cover my cold sores like advertised. It did not help heal faster or keep pain down caused by the cold sores.

    You can not cover these with any face product such as make up or lip balm ect.

    They fall off very easily.
