FAQ's

How fast does the patch work?

The patch begins to work as soon as it is applied and is clinically proven to heal* fast! Additionally, a comparative, multi centre 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 breast feeding?

If you are pregnant or breast feeding, 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 spreading to others. And because sufferers are unable to touch the affected area, the risk of contamination from the wound is also reduced.

Myths

Do only dirty people get cold sores?

No. A Cold Sore is an extremely common condition: Research shows that almost 80% of all people over the age thirty have tested positive exposure to HSV-1 at some time in their life, and over 20% of people 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.
