Frequently asked questions
How do I apply Herpatch Cold Sore Serum to the cold sore?
- Before use, wash or rinse the affected area.
- Make sure your hands are clean and dry.
- Gently apply a small amount of the film forming serum on the cold sore so that it adequately covers all lesions and a margin of healthy skin surrounding them. After a few minutes the white serum forms a protective and transparent film over the cold sore. The serum can be reapplied, if necessary, every 3-4 hours until the cold sore is completely healed. The film can be removed, if necessary, with warm water.
- You can use Herpatch Cold Sore Serum at any stage of the outbreak. However, we suggest applying it at first sign of an outbreak.

What is the difference between Herpatch and a typical acyclovir cream?
In contrast to a typical acyclovir cream, Herpatch Cold Sore Serum forms a protective and transparent film over the blister. The film forming serum, loaded with active properties, creates an ideal micro-environment and helps to speed up the healing process.
Herpatch Cold Sore Serum will treat every stage of the outbreak, from the tingling to the healing phase, while acyclovir creams only have an effect during the first stage of the outbreak (tingling phase).
The benefits are numerous. Herpatch Cold Sore Serum fastens the healing of your cold sore, prevents the itching and burning, takes away the redness and swelling, prevents scabbing and reduces the blistering.
Because of these reasons, Herpatch Cold Sore Serum is highly effective.
