What are Compeed Cold Sore Patches? 

Compeed Cold Sore Patches are discreet and effective, featuring hydrocolloid active gel technology for fast healing and a reduction in scabbing. It starts to work from the very first sign and continues throughout all stages. Its discreet design helps to protect the cold sore and helps to hide it from sight.Compeed Cold Sore Patches also create a virus shield to help reduce the risk of contamination. Each patch should stay in place for up to 12 hours. This product contains 15 patches.

 

How to use this product

Always apply Compeed Cold Sore Patches exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor / Chemist4U pharmacist has told you. Wash your hands before and after use, and ensure that your skin is clean and dry. Do not apply any cream on the lip, as the patch may no longer stick to your lip.

 

Start by tearing off one product along the perforated edge to separate it from the others. Take care not to press down on the protective teal cover. Hold the clear paper applicator at the curved edge. Using both hands, carefully peel off the clear paper applicator from the protective teal coloured cover.

 

You will see the round cold sore patch on the upper part of the applicator. Take care not to touch the adhesive side of the patch. Apply this part of the applicator to the cold sore and using a mirror, gently press down to firmly place the patch on to the cold sore. Gently peel back the applicator leaving the Compeed Cold Sore Patch in place. Make-up or lipstick can be applied over the patch.

 

For best results, start using the patches when you first feel a tingle and continue using a patch day and night throughout the outbreak until the lesion is fully healed.



What is a cold sore?

Cold sores are small, fluid-filled blisters that are often grouped together; they appear on or around your lips due to the herpes simplex virus. When this blister bursts, the cold sore will scab over, usually disappearing in a couple of weeks without leaving a scar. They’re very contagious, and can be spread by close contact like kissing or sharing cutlery. 

 

Are cold sores contagious?

Yes, cold sores are very contagious and are spread through close contact like kissing, oral sex or sharing cutlery. Even when your cold sore scabs over, it will still be contagious, but it’s at its highest in the blister form when it’s wet and oozing.

 

You should refrain from touching your cold sore (apart from when you’re applying treatments) and avoid close contact with others to avoid spreading the virus onto surfaces and to other people.

Little on the pricey side for the number of patches but they do work very effectively.
