Partying, shopping, and all the rush and excitement associated with Christmas is part of the festivities. However, constantly being on the go can take a toll on our health and for some people (some 20 per cent of us ), it can trigger a cold sore outbreak.
With the perfect dress and killer heels, cold sores are not exactly the kind of accessory we’d like to wear to the office Christmas party. With one eye on the office hunk and the other on the secretly placed mistletoe, don’t let cold sores ruin your big chance, kiss your Christmas hunk under the mistletoe this year with Compeed Cold Sore Patches.
Previously treatment of cold sores was limited to topical creams, but all that changed when wound care expert Compeed launched its cold sore patch. Women everywhere have been hailing this ultra thin, transparent circular plaster since its arrival, mostly because not only is it effective, it is lipstick friendly too. The patch, which covers and seals the cold sore, really is the most discreet way to help heal cold sores fast while providing healing benefits at each stage of the cold sore outbreak including relief from pain, tingling, itching, burning, redness, and swelling, as well as reducing the blistering to help prevent scabbing and reducing the risk of contamination from the wound – allowing you more mistletoe kisses this holiday season.
Available from pharmacies nationwide, Compeed Cold Sore Patches come in a handy lightweight compact with mirror and costs €9.99 for 15 patches.
