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.

    Good once it’s scabbed!

    I’m an avid cold sore getter and have tried so many products! I’ve found when I first feel one coming on the polysporin patches don’t prevent it but rather help once the cold sore has scabbed to keep it moist and from cracking! Great for coverage with food and drinks but also comes off fairly easily

    Not worth the money

    I suffer regularly with cold sores and my lips are completely scarred due to them. I tried these patches to try and heal them quicker and sooth the itching and burning. These patches are useless and do nothing but make it look like I've stuck cellotape on my face. The patches kept slipping off making me worry all it was going to do was make the coldsore spread.

    Awful!

    I get a lot of cold sores, they’re agonising and gross. I tried these patches and it just made it worse. I started off with a small blister and ended up with a perfect circle of blisters exactly the same size as the patch.

    Normally I clean my cold sores with salt water and then apply aciclovir cream a few times a day (don’t bother with Zovirax, it’s really overpriced. Use a generic aciclovir cream from a supermarket or £1 shop or pharmacy - they are all identical and much cheaper). The salt water really helps as salt will kill literally any microorganism, even viruses.

    My routine usually works fine, I only used the patches as I wanted to cover up the cold sore. It didn’t work, obviously. The patch is really visible and obviously you can’t cover it with makeup because it’s plastic. It also doesn’t help if you get cold sores in really awkward places, such as your nose. Basically I had a really bad experience with patches and would advise you not to waste your money.

    Empêche la propagation

    Je fais des feux sauvages plusieurs fois par année et cette patche de polysporin permet d’empêcher la propagation. Je trouve ce produit très efficace. Exemple lors d’un rendez-vous chez le dentiste, je peux l’appliquer et je peux m’y rendre sans risquer d’infecter quelqu’un.

    Skillful coverage and completely effective

    I love these! When you feel a cold sore coming in, it's the best way to fight it and cover it. I put lipstick right over top for more coverage. They don't dry out your lips or aggregate the sore. They are able to be cut smaller for the perfect size

    Life saver

    Nothing is more embarrassing, not to mention annoying, painful, itchy, and just flat out unattractive as having a cold sore. I get them a couple times a year, and it always seems to be at the most inconvenient times. What I love about these, is it not only speeds up the healing process, gets rid of all those annoying side effects, but it also hides your cold sore so you barely even know its there. Love these .

    This works!!

    I’ve suffered with cold sores almost all my life, they’re painful, annoying and definitely embarrassing. These patches heal and conceal quickly and anything that helps them go away faster is great in my book. I will absolutely be purchasing these again.
