Mederma® Cold Sore Discreet Healing patch contains 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 help avoid social embarrassment.
Mederma® Cold Sore Discreet Healing Patches also create a virus shield to help reduce the risk of contamination.
Be sure to wash your hands before and after the application. There should not be any cream on the lip as the patch may not stick. Tear off one product along the perforated edge to seperate it from the others.
Hold the clear paper applicator at the curved edge.
Using both hands, carefully peel off the clear paper applicator from the protective cover.
You will see the round cold sore patch on the upper part of the applicator. Do not 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 patch in place. Make-up or lipstick can be applied over the patch.
Cold Sores generally heal in 7 – 12 days. In a clinical study, 65% of patients using the MEDERMA® Cold Sore Patch said their cold sore healed faster than it did with their usual cold sore treatment. Always consult a doctor or pharmacist if the sore does not heal or if it appears to get worse.
