How to use
How to use COMPEED® Invisible Cold Sore patch
- You can use the cold sore patch at any stage of an outbreak. However, it is best to apply at the first sign of an outbreak - usually a tingling or itching sensation.
- Wash your hands before and after applying the COMPEED® cold sore patch.
- COMPEED® cold sore patches should be used 24 hours a day until the sore is healed*.
- A patch will naturally detach after approximately 8 hours and should then be replaced with a new one.
- Don't remove the patch because you want the sore to 'breathe'. This is actually counter-productive and can lengthen the healing* process. Keeping the patch on is clinically proven to ensure the optimal healing* environment is maintained.
- * healing of the cold sore lesion
How it works
