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.

    Cold sore polysporin patches

    Unfortunately I have always suffered from cold sores. I have tried all and this product out there. I found if you don't use this within minutes of feeling a cold sore coming on it will not work. I ha e used it both just as soon as a cold sore us about to come on as well as when it's just becoming visible. If I were you I would save your money and go see a doctor for some meds.

    Not for me

    I really liked this product at the start but I get a lot of cold sores and unfortunately my body developed a tolerance for it and it didn't do anything for me anymore much like everything else I've tried. While it's no longer for me I still think it was a good product for a while

    Okay for night time use

    I get these from time to time, especially if I know I will be around people the entire time I have this. It works well if you use this right away or at night when you are sleeping, Other than that though it does not heal them fast, just makes the shedding process more bearable.

    Don’t stay on!

    Possibly these would work if they would stay on? But they don’t...at least for me they wouldn’t. Nothing will ever heal if the patch immediately falls off :( big disappointment for the cost

    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.
