How to use COMPEED®
• 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 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.
