Can almost forget the coldsore
I get a lot of coldsores. With compeed patches the itch and the pain are masked somehow and this allows you to forget for a while that you have a coldsore. YoU can converse with people without being constantly reminded of the grossness on your face.
I do not think healing time is reduced, but sometimes it can reduce the severity of the blister formation.
Being able to function socially however is worth it even without speedy healing.
I have had some issues with application over time, but mostly get the patch on as directed.
Time a patch sta...
Just saw this at the Chemist warehouse today. Currently having big cold sores at the upper corner of my lips. I love how it concealed the coldsores, makes me feel more confident to talk or stand near to people. On top of that, I like how it covered up the coldsores, makes it less painful when drinking or eating. I do not find trouble in putting them on. The descriptor mentions that one patch should stay on for 8 hours, however I find this is not the truth in my case, I have used 3 patches so far in the past 6 and half hours. Other than that, I ...am loving this patch, it is better than keep applying the coldsore cream to the affected areas. I just put the patch on, feeling less pain and do not have to keep reminding myself to regularly apply the coldsore cream.
I bought this product to help with my upper lip cold sore. I used it as soon as i got a tingle but it did nothing to my cold sore and i used the entire supply as directed by makers. Im going back to my coldsore creams. I dont recommend this product. I was contacted by the company asking me for my receipt etc but i had already told them i had thrown everything in my trash bin. I had to get the packet out of the bin to take the photo in the comments article.
I'm only just discovering these now?
So I've had cold sores all my life. No real pattern to when I get them . I've tried everything possible, nothing helped or healed them fast. From that 1st tingling to them going away it's usually 2 weeks. I bought the compeed coldsore patch after 2 cold sores started to appear. Put on with no problems. Cold sores not as visable and able to apply makeup over them. The sores are flatter ( not sure that's the right words to use) and day 5 very close to healing. I will definitely make sure I have a supply for the future.
not very good so far
I bought these yesterday after a friend recommended them. I'm afraid they don't peel off very easily and quite often the first peel curled back on itself before I had a chance to apply it. I was very careful especially when they sent cheap! I found when I did get them on they stayed on for abOut 2 hours and wanted to peel off. Felt like a bit of a waste of money actually and think I might try Zovirax patches
Only cold sore treatment.
I unfortunately suffer from cold sores & recently had the cold sore from hell appear overnight on my bottom lip (so large it almost covered half the lip!). In the past I have used Zovirax. But as this was large & I was so worried about the ugliness that was bound to come when the blisters break & the crusting appears I went out to the chemist to find anything to assist. There I discovered the Compeed Patches & boy am I glad I did!
They are fantastic! I cannot recommend this product enough. And in future they will be all I need to treat my c...
This might happen to you!!
I applied a patch on the small cold sore forming in the corner of my mouth. The next day the sore had became as large as the patch itself! I had a perfectly round cold sore with several blisters inside. It was huge and painful! I persisted with the patches for several more days but it became obvious they were not healing the cold sore and if anything were keeping it moist and not allowing it to dry out so a scab could form. Will never use these again.
Where have you been all my life!
I experience very large,swollen red and blistery sores that are painful, ugly and usually take weeks to heal. I found these patches about 6 months ago and they are incredible! Somehow they hide the swelling and colour of the sore and make the lip look more natural. The patch is quite sticky and if placed correctly will last a few hours (I generally change them after eating). Keeping them covered and clean really speeds up the healing time and stops the spreading. I would (and have) absolutely reccomend this to anyone that has suffered from cold sores. It really works!
I bought these after I a friend gave me one to try and it was great. But try putting the patch on myself and it didn't stick for long. Plus it didn't hasten the healing as they are unmedicated. But they do hide the unsightly cold sore, which thankfully I don't get too often. Not sure they are worth the money to be honest but I guess it depends on how often you get cold sores.
I'm glad I found these
My daughter who works in a pharmacy got me these. I never would have looked for them as I'd never imagined there'd be something like it. It works really well, stays on a long time if I don't apply it to the wet area of my lip (towards the inside) and it relieves the pain and keeps the sore from crusting up and looking like death. I now start using it as soon as I notice the tingling on my lip.
The only issue I have with them is the application. It is so dammed difficult to get them off the sheet without bunching or sticking to itself. And for the price, I don't enjoy having to chuck one out and try again. I hope they find a more effective application process.
overpriced unmedicated cold sore patch
I tried the compeed cold sore patch out of desperation. Noted the patch is UN-MEDICATED so I got thinking. Unless there are scientific information we are not made aware of, isn't this un-medicated patch is essentially just a very expensive band-aid?
The patch does not stay on anywhere near the 8 hrs time frame they mentioned. The itch and tingling is still there with the patch on - It is just an UN-MEDICATED patch/ expensive band-aid after all
The only issue with these is that they only come in one size, and do come off after a few hours if you have a large issue, creating lots of... issooze. However, given the nature of the wounds this is no doubt inevitable. Once you have a knack of how to get them on without stretching, or bunching but once you have, it makes life with a coldsore carefree. You can use make up to cover the patch, you can drink using the middle of your mouth, the possibilities are endless. Thank you Compeed. For living up to what your product claims itself to be. A true relief in the worst kind of annoyance known to lip kind.
- Verified purchase
Works mostly as described, much better than the competition
I also wrote a review of Zovirax inviSeal Cold Sore Patches, and by comparison these Compeed Total Care Invisible Cold Sore Patches are fantastic. Mostly the Compeed patches work as advertised, however they still have some things that could be improved. Overall, they work well and have some advantages, but are not great value (compared to medicated creams) and come unstuck easily.
- They are relatively unobtrusive. The clear patch has a dullness that mimics skin tone quite well.
- Generally they stay stuck for a 2-4 hours at least. B...
They are a little expensive but well worth the money. Cold sores are horrible. These help to take the pain away and also speed the healing process. Great for work when have an ugly cold sore as it can help to hide it. Well worth having some of these in the cupboard
Ease of use and results that I have got
Expensive and not many patches in packet
top way to kick cold sores to the kern
i've suffered the dreaded cold sore periodically since i was small, having used all the creams that stil took 2 weeks to get rid of the coldsore. i saw these advertised so i gave them a burl . i found that they reduce the duration , stop the itch and the scabbing completely . only hassle is when you eat or drink they come off
got rid of cold sore quicker than anything else
comes off with food or drink even though they say they wont
Can't live without these!
I used to get heaps of coldsores and eventually tried everything and became immune to any anti-viral tablets/ creams due to prolonged use! I bought these patches after a pharmacist recommended them and now don't use anything else! I apply a new one as soon as the old one starts to "loosen" and have one on 24/7 until the coldsore has basically disappeared, this takes about 4 or 5 days! These patches also completely soothe the coldsore, no itchiness, tingling or anything is felt. Of course the patch is visible but it sure beats a weepy crusty coldsore sitting on your lip! I don't go anywhere without this product!
Shortens healing time to about 4 or 5 days. Provides instant and continuous relief!
Expensive! $20 for a pack!
