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.

    Okay

    I don’t think I would buy the product again. I’m prone to cold sores so I have tried a wide variety of products for them. I found these did not work as great as they claimed to work. There price is very high as well for the amount you receive.

    Good to keep on hand.

    I discovered this product a few years back before I took medication for cold sores.
    I found using a medicated ointment for a few days then applying this patch for the last remaining days worked well.

    It “healed” the sore in my opinion.
    Using treatment to get rid of the virus before it spread then using the patch to finish the job was great.

    It hid the sore VERY well when applied perfectly. Other times you would see the plastic if it didn’t stick to your skin properly.

    I would recommend this to anyone who gets cold sores, but would also advise them to go see their doctor for medication if they get cold sores often.

    Somewhat works to hide sore, horrible at treating sore.

    I work in fashion and model for a small company on the side. My biggest worry is to hide the sore, but I would obviously like it gone quickly as well. My cold sores, untreated, last around 10-12 days. They do not hurt but are very ugly to look at.
    Concerning hiding the sore, it is effective when I do not eat or drink anything. The edges of the patch are still visible even with lipstick on top of it too unfortunately. When I eat or drink, the patch lifts and goes from clear to a white/cloudy colour. This makes it extremely visible.
    Concerning treating the sore, it does not do anything. My cold sore still lasted 10-12 days despite using this product at first signs (tingling), having it on 24/7, and changing it whenever I eat/drink (around 4-5 times a day).
    It is too expensive of a product to only last me 4-5 days. It does not treat the cold sore and does not speed up healing time. It moderately hides the sore as long as it does not lift.

    Love Polysporin but not this product.

    I haven't had a cold sore in YEARS! I fled to the pharmacy was thrilled to see a trusted name offering relief. Let me tell you though these things are fantastic IF you get a perfect application which is nearly impossible. They would be far better if you could select a size.

    Maybe not using it properly!?

    They did not adhere properly and was blatantly visible.
    Furthermore I did not find them to help with healing time at all
    Not sure if I used them properly but they were too large and slid right off

    Not worth it

    When this product came out i was so excited to try it . I was almost positive it would be effective since I already trust the Polysporin brand. Boy was I sadly disappointed big time, it was difficult to apply and immediately started falling off. I tried many times but had the same results, the moment It got a bit wet it just peeled off.

    Didn’t work as well as they advertised

    Easy to work with. And they say as soon was it starts coming off to replace it with a new one. Well it’s always peeling off after you do anything eat, smile ,laugh. I went though most of the package on the first day. And the product it self is pricey. It didn’t work well with me. So I won’t be purchasing it again I would rather use the cream and reapply the cream as needed

    Not a big fan

    I'm unfortunate to get a cold sore usually around fall. Same place and around the same time yearly on my upper lip. Very embarising, people know what it is. I liken the use of trying to conceal the cold sore whole it heals but the product does not stay in place, falls off shortly after applying. I have found another product where i apply it as soon as i feel the tingle and I'm lucky enough not to have it even blister.. gone within 4-5days

    Don’t waste your money

    When you have a cold sore this is not what it needs. It needs air to heal along with medicated cream, polysporin cream works wonders but this piece of plastic made me even more self conscious and just didn’t stay in place and didn’t heal as fast as the cream alone
