Comments about Abreva Conceal Invisible Cold Sore Patch, 12 ea:
Although I initially had trouble opening the wrapping, after I figured it out, I never had trouble again; in fact, it was easy-peasy. Best of all, even though Abreva is recommended for use at the first sign of outbreak, this product helped heal and conceal a cold sore on my chin that was well past the initial stages. The cold sore never got itchy and never crusted over. I was not tempted to pick at it (as usually happens). Each patch lasted about 24 hours, and it dissolved completely with extended exposure to water (i.e., in the shower). Concealment would have been perfect if the patch weren't so shiny. Could probably be covered with makeup if a person wears that stuff. Loved it!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
The patch should be applied to clean and dry skin without any cream or make up.
While holding the protective liner marked with a 2, remove and discard the protective liner marked 1.
Holding the applicator tab, remove and discard liner 2. Note: do not touch the adhesive side of the circular patch.
Still holding the applicator tab, apply the patch to the area to be covered. Press firmly on the circular part of the applicator for at least 15 seconds.
Carefully remove the applicator by pulling the tab over the patch.
The patch should be left in place on the skin. Make-up, lipstick or other cover up can be applied over the patch. Repeat application only when an applied patch starts to detach. On average, the patch remains in place for 8 to 12 hours, this will likely vary from person to person and at different stages of the cold sore. When you are ready to remove a patch, carefully remove the patch to avoid pain and/or bleeding of the cold sore.
Important: If the patch doesn't detach easily, moisten the area with water and carefully remove. Continue using the patches until cold sore has healed or patches have been used up.
