Polysporin Cold Sore Healing Patch Reviews
#1 in Remedies

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.

    Could not get it to stay in place

    I suffer with cold sores and I have not had much luck with this product as I found it moved around on my lip. I have had much more luck using Carmex lip chap

    My favourite cold sore treatment

    Not only do these patches slightly hide the ugly stages of the cold sore, I’m convinced they drastically reduce the duration of your cold sore if you begin the patches at the first “tingle”

    It works if you catch it in time

    I personally made use these to help with all the cold sores I get. This does help increase the amount of time you are in pain and it isn’t very visible to others. I recommend this but the price is ridiculous and keeps rising. I now have medication to help control cold sores

    Not my favorite

    I personally didn’t like this product. Yes you can apply it on and somehow try to “make the cold less visible “ however I think it only makes it worse, as it doesn’t allow it to dry out. I won’t purchase it again.

    Lifesaver

    This works like a champ to tame my Coldspring. I put it on before bed though as it isn't as invisible as claimed. The only downfall I find is that it hurts like a son to remove! Recommended to me by a friend!

    It works but not as well as expected

    I have purchased a few times and it works but not as well as expected. Depending on the location it doesn’t adhere well and also isn’t really as fast acting. That said it’s just as good as any other other similar products.

    Never again

    This concept of a product is absolutely amazing. Unfortunately the actual functionality and result are horrible! These just made my cold sore bigger and took longer to heal. I found the contagious liquid of my cold sore just got trapped or became so much that the patch would come off. Never again. My experience was one of nothing but more disappointment than the healing I needed.

    Made sore worse.

    This product did not work for me. I found that it only made it worse and held all the contagious fluid inside the sticker which resulted in a larger cold score. It's a nice idea but sadly did not work. At least in my occasion.
