You can learn more about this product by reading our full review below.
The strips not only contain powerful antibacterial and antiseptic ingredients, it also contains extracts from soothing balms. This gives it a mild cooling sensation which can help alleviate certain irritations and pain caused by the canker sores. The strips contain the following active ingredients:
- Hydroxypropyl Cellulose
- Clove Bud Oil
- Titanium Dioxide
- Potassium Sorbate
- Iron Oxide
Remove the strip from the sachet and gently press it on top of the affected area within the mouth. Wait for the strip to completely adhere to the skin. Once the strip is firmly in place, avoid touching the strip with your tongue as it might get dislodged. You should avoid eating for the next 30 minutes or so. After an hour, the strip will slip off on its own. You can repeat the application of the strips but do not use more than four strips within a 24-hour time period.

Possible Side Effects
The product is relatively safe; we could not find any complaints about any side effects. However, there is a chance that your body might react negatively to the ingredients contained in the strips. Allergic reactions are also possible. If you feel a sudden burning sensation upon contact with the skin, it is advised to stop use immediately and contact your doctor to learn what to do next. You should also not use these strips if the sore is infected or if you have herpes as it might exacerbate the condition.
The product does not come with any customer guarantee.
The Bottom Line
All in all, the Dr. Collins Perio Canker Sore Cover Strips seem to be good for quickly treating mild oral wounds or lesions. However, these are merely designed for treating mild cases. It is not developed to treat serious oral infections, though, so do not expect it to do much good if you have a more serious case. The way this product needs to be applied, and kept in place for an hour, may be annoying for some. This, plus the lack of guarantee, may lead consumers to look for other alternatives on the market.
