Best patches

published

After years of using a different branded cold sore patch, I tried Compeed, just because it was all the chemist had in stock at the time. I wasn't keen, as I thought it may be inferior. However, I love this patch. Cold sores are terrible things, painful and unsightly. Compeed patches helped it heal fairly quickly and I'm glad, that by chance, I ended up with this brand. Will buy only this brand from now on.

Purchased in February 2019 at Chemist Warehouse Physical Store.

Good idea but not impressed

published

I get a cold sore every few years so I've just learnt about the patches. Instructions say they stay on for 8 hours but the longest I got was two hours. They just lift from the back and I have to remove them. I've gone through six in a day, too costly. I'm going back to the cream.

Purchased in October 2019 at Chemist Warehouse Physical Store for $15.99.

Use with acyclovir cream 5%

published

During the day I find the patch ideal to prevent me from touching and irritating the cold sore. I find my lips dry out in the aircon at work so the patch keeps the sore moist which in my experience aids healing.
At night I still use the chemist's cold sore cream thickly.
This routine along with Lysine, vit C a& zinc tablets have helped me reduce the severity of cold sore. I believe mine are largely stress and dehydration induced.
I have not experienced the problem of irritation from the patch. It comes off easily (but not too easily). It is very expensive though.

I always use these

published

I very rarely get a cold sore. Maybe once every couple of years. But I find these patches get rid of the cold sore usually within 4 days and stop it from scabbing. The only annoying thing is they come off whenever you eat or drink... I need two packets for one cold sore. But definitely worth the effort of reapplying.

Some skin seemed to come off a little when removed

published

I usually only get cold sores like twice a year maybe and when I do I usually just stick to my lypsine tablets and cream but this time around I got one worse than I usually do and wanted to try something different..
I found them really easy to put on and actually came off pretty easy but it just seemed to take some skin off with it, it didn’t hurt or anything but once it was time to come off my coldsore was bright red. Maybe if I try it just as soon as I notice symptoms next time but I think il just stick to my cold sore cream next time

Compeed application

published

Every time I try to apply compeed patches, they fail to go on properly, no matter how careful and methodical I am! I waste at least half the pack over a few days, poor design for application at consumers expense...and they are that! It's a shame because it can do the job otherwise!


Really helps

published

I find they really do cover up the cold sore so it’s barely visible and it also speeds up the healing process whilst skipping the painful steps!! The only thing I would ask them to change or improve, they’re quite painful to remove and I do wonder whether pulling it off the cold sore irritates it. But other than that, I would highly recommend!!


Work well however difficult to apply

published

The patches work well once you get them applied. However this is extremely difficult. Have suffered since a child with cold sores. Used Zovirax cream in the past and a friend told me about Compeed. Found they really work but you need to apply as soon as you feel a lump appearing. The severity is reduced and I don't get the painful Skin cracking. Unfortunately my cold sores always form on my bottom lip towards the inside of my mouth so the patches need to be replaced every time I eat and drink. They are so difficult to apply that I end up wasting a few or need to apply 2 to get correct coverage. This is really annoying as they are expensive. Would like Compeed to improve the way they need to be applied.

Will never use again.

published

Had a small cold sore on my bottom lip, have previously used Zoviraz which I was happy with but decided to try something else. Well I totally regret it. Followed the instructions on how to remove the patch and not only did the patch come away but so did several layers of my skin! Ended up with a very sore bright red patch under my lip and it took 8 months to disappear!! Just be careful if you have sensitive skin.


Really was hopeful

published

So, I’m a long time cold sore sufferer. I got a small bump on my lip when I woke up and immediately threw a patch on. I continued this routine through the week - the sore was almost gone in four days! Miracle!! But, then I notice a bump near the old sore and it was spreading. Once I took off my patch -WHAM!! A sore has appeared the exact same size and place where the patch was placed. Fair to say I’m currently icing and alcohol rubbing to try get it down. I’ve been using compeed patches for about a year now, I’ve had mixed results. This experience however has turned me off them entirely. I’ll take my chances with a small cold sore over a huge monster any day.

Best product ever!

published

I felt the tingle in the morning so ran to the supermarket that evening after work, I could see a small cluster of blisters just starting to form. Put a patch on and used for 6 days straight, you couldn't see it through the patch and the patch was surprisingly invisible. It was barely obvious I had one. I found for me they lasted between 10 to 20 hours, so didn't need changed frequently. Normally my coldsores hurt but with the patch I felt no discomfort. Finally on day 6, I can't even see signs of any coldsores.


I have found what I've been looking for!

Waste of money

published

Paid $20 for these patches and went through 5 of them trying to stick it to my lip, the peel off is just stupid, whoever come up with this has no idea, it could be as simple as a bandaid but no they try to reinvent the wheel. Don't waste your money and stick with the creams.

So I started looking for a way to get cure permanently from this deadly virus I visited so many hospitals in search for a solution but it never worked out.so I started searching for cure to my herpes virus.

Few month ago I came across a site where a lady was sharing a testimony about Dr OHIKHOBO about how he cured herpes and all kinds of diseases with is natural herbs so I decided to give it a try so I email the Dr he told me how I was going to get the herbs so I did as he instructed few days later I received the herbs and I started taking the herbs as instructed by the Dr.

I was shocked two weeks after when my doctor told me that I was free from herpes so I decided to let the world know how I was cured from herpes by Dr OHIKHOBO. you can reach him through his email: drohikhoboherbalcenter@gmail.com if you also want cure for your herpes or any of the disease listed below because the Dr says he also as cure for them.
