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.

    I wouldn't buy this again

    I've tried this product twice just to give it a fair chance. I have to be honest and say they didn't work well for me. I find them really hard to apply and I found they have made my cold sores spread more I believe it's to tight to the sore therefore spreading the virus. I find the the other creams on the market work way better for me.

    Not good

    Tried this hoping it would hold up to the polysporin name but unfortunately it did not. I get at least 1 to 2 cold sores a year and all this did was move around and fall off so it was just a waste of money.

    Not for me

    I suffer very regular with cold sores and I thought these little patches would be perfect unfortunately I’m not impressed the patch continued time after time to come off and move and the more I touch it to put it back the more the virus is spreading on my lips I wouldn’t buy again

    Not for me

    I am someone who suffers from cold sores regularly and am constantly trying out different creams/remedies! This isn’t the worst product I’ve ever used however I wasn’t overly impressed with it...I found it didn’t stick down well for long, and once it starts coming away from your skin you just have to take it off and change it.
    I didn’t feel like it was relieving the tenderness and it’s just not something I would personally use again

    Not for me

    I get quite a few cold sores and often in clusters so I had nothing to lose trying these out. I was so hopeful but they made no difference what so ever.

    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)

    Not worth it, more noticeable

    I unfortunately suffer from cold sore fairly often. When I first heard of this product I did give it a fair shake. I was disappointed. For me it make the whole healing process more cumbersome, I felt that the patch wouldn’t stick/attach properly- only drawing more attention to my lip area. And due to the non-affixing I’m certain that the healing properties that the patch was supposed to have, didn’t occur!

    Since all this I’ve just seen my doctor and had success with real medical intervention.

    Would not recommend this product

    I have frequent cold sores and hate being able to see them. I purchased this product because it says it disguised the cold sore and helps heal it at the same time. I put it on and within 5 minutes it was falling off because it got wet from my saliva. Would not recommend buying it as it is a waste of money and doesn’t do what it says it is supposed to.
