Description

Benefits:

  1. Heals fast: By ensuring the right level of moisture in the wound, the patch makes it easier for nutrients to disseminate. This promotes the skin’s own healing mechanism, thus speeding up the healing process.

     
  2.  

    Hides Instantly: The patch renders cold sores largely invisible, reducing social embarrassment and social discomfort about the sufferer’s appearance. Lipstick or make-up may also be applied over the patch, further reducing the sore’s visibility.

     
  3.  

    Relieves Pain: The patch covers and protects the nerve endings that are exposed in the wound, resulting in soothing relief.

     
  4.  

    Reduces redness and swelling: By reducing the tension of the skin, the patch relieves swelling and lessens redness.

     
  5.  

    Reduces tingling, itching and burning: The patch maintains the hydration of the skin while protecting the skin from drying out.

     
  6.  

    Reduces the blistering and helps prevent scabbing or crusting: The patch causes a germ-protected environment that stops the sore from drying out, thereby helping to prevent scab formation.

     
  7.  

    Reduces risk of contamination from the wound: The patch provides a protective barrier over the sore that the cold sore virus cannot penetrate, thereby helping to reduce the risk of contamination out of the wound. It also prevents sufferers from touching the sore – a common source of cross-contamination. Water and bacteria are also repelled.

     

Compeed Total Care Invisible Cold Sore Patch is suitable for:

Compeed Total Care Invisible Cold Sore Patch is clinically proven to lessen scabs for faster healing#, effective from the moment of application. The patches heal* your cold sore at a comparable speed to acyclovir 5% cream, helping you get back to your unstoppable best – and fast!

For discreet, day-time treatment, this transparent healing patch with unique Hydrocolloid-075 particles will keep your cold sore out of sight and out of mind. Hidden under the patch, your cold sore will heal naturally while you get on with your life

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.

Directions:

  1. Wash your hands. Ensure your skin is clean and dry. Do not use in combination with cream, as the patch may no longer stick to the wound and thus will not provide full treatment benefits.

     
  2.  

    Remove the arrowed applicator from the wrapper and hold one end in each hand.

     
  3.  

    Gently pull one end away in the direction of the arrows, exposing half of the patch. Take care not to touch the adhesive side of the patch

     
  4.  

    Gently press the half-exposed part of the patch onto the cold sore and hold in place.

     
  5.  

    Hold the top side of the applicator and slowly peel away downwards, ensuring the patch remains in place and is smoothed to the lip.

     

How to remove

If the patch stays on, there is no need to remove it and change it. If the patch does start to detach from the skin it should be removed and replaced with a new one.

  1. To remove the patch, loosen it at the edge.
  2. Use both hands to hold loosened edge of the patch.
  3. Stretch the patch sideways, pulling hands apart as it is peeled away.

FAQ:

How fast does the patchwork?

The patch begins to work as soon as it is applied and is clinically proven to heal# fast. Additionally, a comparative, multicentre clinical study provided evidence that the speed of healing* of the Compeed Total Care Invisible Cold Sore Patch is comparable to a cream that contains 5% acyclovir.

Does the patch contain an active ingredient?

No. The patch is not fighting the replication of the virus, but treating the outbreak. Fighting the replication of the virus is only part of the problem when you get a Cold Sore. The virus can never actually be eliminated. In order to treat the outbreak, Compeed Total Care Invisible Cold Sore Patch uses Hydrocolloid-075 particles. Hydrocolloid-075 is used in some modern wound care technologies: it is the vital element in the design of the ultra-thin, flexible and discreet wound treatment. The patch also offers a number of additional benefits.

Can the patch be cut to the appropriate size of the lesion?

No. This should be avoided as it can limit the patch’s healing* effectiveness.

Can you eat and drink while wearing the patch?

Yes, but always ensure that the product remains in place. Since the virus is also present in the saliva of cold sore sufferers, sharing glasses or cutlery with others is not recommended.

Does the patch protect from UV?

No. We would recommend not exposing the cold sore lesion to the sun, if possible.

Can I use the patch if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, check with your physician before using Compeed Total Care Invisible Cold Sore Patch.

Can you kiss someone while wearing the patch?

Be careful. The patch helps to reduce contamination from the wound, if it is placed and sealed around the sore appropriately. However, be sure to observe the same precautionary measures as always with Cold Sores. Since the virus is also present in the saliva of cold sore sufferers it is recommended not to have strong intimate contact in the mouth area.

Can make-up, lipstick or sunscreen be applied over the patch?

Yes, make-up, lipstick or sunscreen can be applied over the patch. Note that cream or lipstick should not be applied under the patch as this can reduce its adhesive ability.

Does this product need to be applied around the clock or only during waking hours?

For best results, we recommend wearing the patch 24 hours a day

Are cold sores contagious?

Yes. During an outbreak, the HSV-1 is present and can be easily transferred from one person to another, for example through kissing or sharing a drink. Compeed Total Care Invisible Cold Sore Patch seals the cold sore, helping to prevent the virus from spreading to others. And because sufferers are unable to touch the affected area, the risk of contamination from the wound is also reduced.

Do only dirty people get cold sores?

No. A cold sore is an extremely common condition: Research shows that 76% of Australians have tested positive exposure to HSV-1 at some time in their life, and some of these people will consequently have a Cold Sore outbreak every so often.

Do Cold Sores appear after a cold?

Not necessarily. Cold sore outbreaks are generally a result of psychological or physical stress, such as cold or flu, fatigue, cold weather, exposure to sun, menstruation, hormones, or fever.
