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.

    Never again!

    I tried this product hoping it could cover the sore and not have to worry about it at least for a few hours. Once I put it on, it irritated the cold sore, became pain full and the the sore became 5 times its size. This was a VERY painful experience. Would never try again.

    Always in my Remedy Kit!!

    I suffer from seasonal cold sores, usually suffering through 2-3 a year. This product has made my life so much easier during such a sensitive and gruelling time. Not only does it help heal my cold sores in 2-4 days but paired with Abreva it’s double duty! I love how this helps mask the open sores as well. I can go out and still do what I need to do and I don’t stress as much about having one!

    There's definitely a trick to using these.

    I'm not sure why cold sore products are so dang expensive, but this one is no exception. I find this product to be a wonderful addition to my arsenal of cold-sore fighting weapons. The thing I find most effective at drying up a cold sore quickly has always been rubbing alcohol. After I've applied the alcohol and let it dry completely I'll pop one of these bad boys on (carefully because they're pricey) and go about my day. They don't last well through eating and drinking unless you're careful but they definitely add a layer of protection between the sore and the outside world. I especially like them for my daughter because I can apply it in the morning before she goes to school and at least there's something helping to fight her cold sore throughout the day.

    fonctionne bien

    Avec les changements de saison et le rhume, j'ai souvent des feux sauvages a partir de l'automne. J'utilisais Abreva et cela me coutais très chère. J'ai essayer les petits timbres transparents de Polysporin. Si votre feux sauvage n'est pas trop gros cela fonctionne bien. J'avoue que la feuille ronde transparente n'est pas trop confortable, mais elle guérie vite et contient le liquide qui peux sortir du feux sauvage quand il guérie. Il reste plus abordable que plusieurs autres produits en magasin, mais mettra un petit peu plus de temps pour la guérison de 1 journée ou 2 environ.

    Doesn't quite match the hype

    Used this product. Has some pros, has some cons. Wanted to try it so I shelled out the cash. Value yeah I guess. Pros: fantastic at hiding/camouflaging a cold sore/fever blister as long as your lips are BONE DRY; does it actually speed up healing? Individual opinions will vary. Personally I didn't find that to be the case.
    Cons: can't lick your lips, wear lipstick, gloss, chapstick , drink or eat without constantly replacing. Your choice.

    Pricey

    It definitely gets the job done. I wish it wasn’t so expensive though as this stuff does not have a long expiry time. It is very convenient compare to the ointment. I like to put it on at night when I get a cold sore. It’s visibly reduced by the morning.

    Effective, but too expensive

    Not sure if it helps to heal faster, but definetely makes you look less gross. No one can tell if you're trying to hide a pimple or a cold sore. ;)
    It is quite expensive though...

    Just use lysine tablets w topical cream

    I've gotten cold sores throughout my life to varying degrees. They used to dominate my life until I started using lysine tablets which lessened their frequency almost entirely - which is to say that I no longer get them nearly as bad. I got a small one on my lip and tried this product as the drug store was out of abreva. Instead of 'hiding' the sore I found it just kind of made a 'look at this' bullseye around it. And at $25/pack I felt my money go down the drain immediately as I found I wasted at least 2 patches in the process of trying to apply them, the applicator is impractical and difficult to use. I believe the only reason the sore has diminished quickly is bc of my lysine use. No short cut around cold sores that I know of, other than that. This product is just aggravating - I never post product reviews and felt the need to about this one out of frustration.

    Pas une médicament mais une bonne protection

    Il s'agit d'un bon produit afin de couvrir le feux sauvage et ainsi éviter qu'il se répande. Je l'utilise le jour, sous le maquillage, et la nuit afin d'éviter de la gratter dans mon sommeil. Lorsqu'on le porte, le feu sauvage pique moins et il est plus facile de se concentrer dans les tâches quotidiennes. Le seul hic est le prix: c'est environ 25$ pour 18 timbres.

    Not wow !

    Il fait le travail mais rien de diffèrent des autres produits pour les feux sauvages. Aide à guerir mais pas d'une façon rapide et souper efficace. le maquillage ne tombe pas à perfection dessous.
