They work

Don't work fast enough

Unfortunately, I happen to be one of the 8 out of 10 people who, on occasion suffer from cold sores. The last time I suffered with one, I was on the look out for something good, that would work fast on eliminating the wretched thing from my face. I've always used Zovirax in the past, but on the...

Do pull your skin off if you're not careful

I've suffered with cold sores for as long as I can remember. The creams have helped but they've never stopped the sore from developing and then going all horrible and scabby. I also know just how infectious they are and would hate to pass them on to anyone. Which is why, when the first one since...

For some reason, this year I;ve started getting cold sores - I've not had one for years, so no idea why they've suddenly started coming back. Most of you probably know that cold sores are caused by the Herpes simplex virus . Usually they begin with a tingling itching sensation, before small fluid...

All my life I've had to deal with cold sores, and I would always have to use cream, which not only looks hideous, it doesn't do anything for the pain, it just speeds the coldsore up, and ruins any food I try to eat unless I am very careful. When I got a cold sore recently for the first time in a...

I've been a cold sore sufferer since I was a teenager (who know who I kissed then hey) and I tried every potion and medicine from boiling salty water (ouch!!!) to cream and I have to say that it's never been perfect. All the cream I tried on before like Zovirax for example worked to start with...

Not for me

Everything else - They are PANTS!!!!

I suffer from cold sores whenever the seasons change, if I am run down, if I am stressed or just because Mother Nature feels like a laugh! I have spent many a year trying to find the best solution to this unsightly and painful condition. Up until very recently I have been happily using Zovirax...

It works and hides it well

Can be expensive

Unfortunately I am a cold sore sufferer… I do get the odd attack when I am run down, stressed or when I am coming down with a cold and until Compeed came on the market I was forced to leave my herpes exposed with a mountain of white Zovirax cream on top which inevitably I ended up swallowing...

I have suffered from cold sores since being a small child and found nothing helped until Zovirax (which is very good). I was interested in this product when I saw in advertised but was reluctant to leave Zovirax behind as it was so good and I had tried so many products when I was younger which...

Not completely invisible

I have suffered cold sores for 15 years. So have tried everything! I think Compeed is the best cold sore cure out there! Creams tend to dry up the sore too much and I still have a scabby unsightly lip for a week to 12 days. But these, stop the sore swelling, stop ANY redness, and NO scab ever...

Kill cold-sore symptoms

None

I had a cold sore start up on my top lip 3 days ago........I used Compeed for the first time, about an hour after I noticed the usual signs. This particular spot on my lip (dead-centre) is prone to cold sores, and my usual pattern is that after 3 days I'd be at the weeping/sore stage...

Day 1: I bought the patches between the tingling and blister stage and found that the patch covered the coldsore well and was discrete. Patches stopped itching and stuck firmly all day (about 10 hours) but were difficult to remove (will try using water to remove next one). This is my first...
