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.

    A new product that needs tweaking to get rid of its issues

    I suffer from cold sores on a very regular basis and I found that nothing really worked adequately, then a friend suggested that I try this product, having tried numerous products and prescribed products, I did not have much belief in this product.
    However, I was pleasantly surprised, not an instant result and the longer I used the product for the more it seemed to come unstuck, and with the constant moving it just spreads the infection.
    Needs more work to give better results.
    So as you would imagine this is not my No.1 go to product.

    Did not work as indicated

    When I got a cold sore I thought I would try something different then the over the counter creams. I found that it did not stick like it said it would. It took off the scab every time it was time to change the patch. It did not cover it up like it said it would. It looked like I had a piece of clear tape on my face. It was very noticeable.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Didn’t do it’s job

    Cold sores feel like they last forever and these don’t help speed up the healing time. I was totally disappointed. I found they didn’t stick well to the sore. They didn’t help with the pain or soothing the blister. It actually felt like another noticeable thing on my lip. I found this to be over priced and not do what it claims to do.

    Not bad

    I felt that the patches didn't stick fully. I also didn't feel a huge difference but at least it didn't get worse. It made the cold sore heal a but faster .

    Cold sore virus

    I am afraid I have a cold sore virus which means when I am on holiday or in the sun more I always get cold sores. I have tried different patches and creams but unfortunately nothing seems to help not even this one. So wont be buying this again

    Pas mon produit préféré pour traiter un feux sauvage

    J'ai a peu pres tout essayé pour soigner un feux sauvage et le patch n,a pas été efficace pour moi. Le patch se decolle et finalement est tres voyant quand on le met et si une partie se décolle.
    Je prefere mettre de la creme abreva et du tea tree

    Not the best

    As a person who gets cold sores often, I do not recommend this product.
    There is nothing that great about it that is better than other leading cold sore medications.
    Found the patches to be uncomfortable and fell off often. Even embarrassing to wear in public.
    Did not speed up healing process my any means nor did it help prevent them.
