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.

    The go to for picture day

    I had a cold sore on a day I needed to get some professional photos done. My makeup was not covering the sore as effectively on its on because it was peeling and scanning over. I put the patch on before applying my makeup and it was like both the patch and sore were gone

    Not very effective

    I have tried these a couple times. They did not stop the cold sore from spreading(even when put on at the first sign) and it didn't reduce healing time. And they did not stick very well.

    Feels contained

    I suffer a lot with coldsores - sometimes due to stress or hormones and sometimes the change in seasons . I like the patches as I think they contain the blister and stops you accidentally touching it and spreading it to other areas - I have had them around my eyes and nose before . Probably about the same healing time as the cream but I feel better with a patch on as they do my get as crusty

    Love these cold sore patches!

    I suffer with cold sores when the weather changes seasons and saw a commercial that you could use this patch and cover with make up so I thought I would give it a go.

    Price: pretty high to be honest. Especially as I had to use a few patches for one application. Not because the cold sore was huge but because the first one creased as I was opening it and stuck together it looked terrible on. The second was way too big when I was trying to cover it all too could see was a huge circle.
    The third time lucky! I cut the patch in half and then took that backing off. Once in place I could build up my make up and cover it!
    My cold sore didn’t get bigger and once the patch started to fall away (the next day) I replaced it. And followed suit for 3 days. No scab formed and it was healed fully within 4 days! Incredible. And I wasn’t hiding my face away embarrassed. I always have an energy pack in my bag. Just in case!!

    Very discreet & stays put!

    Easy to use and apply. It sticks very well and isn’t too noticeable. It feels like it is working although it didn’t seem to speed up the healing. I love that it took away the painful part of the blistering. Easy to carry in patch form and no spillage. Would use it again.

    Works

    I got a cold sore and I didn't want to use the other products so I reached for this one and I am happy I did as I was a nice small patch that helped hide it as well as healing.

    Not a fan

    I found the product didn't stick as well as I expected which made the situation look even more awkward than if I hadn't used it. I'm also unsure if it sped up the healing process at all.

    This is an ok product

    I find the cold sore healing patches don't stick the best and doesn't stay on my lip as long as I would like, therefore it doesn't heal much faster because of how they do not stick well. I do continue to buy them hoping I will get better result each time I try. I haven't had better results yet.

    Cold sore help

    This is a fantastic product to use if you need to hide your coldsore. It provides some pain relief but it is best at hiding your unsightly coldsore. Easy to use and last a long time.

    Inutile pour moi

    Colle plus ou moins bien selon la région atteinte. Lors du retrait, la galle se détache toujours de la lésion de la lèvre ce qui la fait saigner et retarde la guérison.
