Hello~I suffered for years from cold sores. They are embarrassing, not to
mention ugly! I have heard that they come on from stress, and that makes sense
to me, as many a time a new cold sore would pop up a day or so before a major
happening! Bad timing! I was told to try L-Lysine, which is an amino acid, taken
by millions of people.
L-Lysine is a food supplement. I purchased some at a local drug store the
very day of a newly sprouted cold sore, and when I got up the next day my cold
sore was not completely gone, but it hadn't gotten any bigger than it was when I
took the L-Lysine! I continued to take it and for me, anyway, it seemed to stunt
the growth of the cold sore. From then on, at the first hint of a cold sore, you
know, when your lip starts to tingle a little, and you can feel that little
From that day on, I've yet to have a cold sore get any further that the first
initial feeling. It has done so much for me!
