Do you get Cold Sores? I did all the time, especially when glutened. That is until 6 months ago when I started taking 2000mg of Lysine everyday. Knock on wood I have been cold sore free since. If I do feel like one is coming on, which is generally when I’ve been glutened or my monthly friend is about to come, I up my dose to 5000mg. So far it’s working.
Before I started taking Lysine I used mainly a concoction of alcohol and Abreva and with as much Abreva I used, I wish I had stock in the company. At $20+ a pop, in such a small container, it really starts to add up for someone on a budget. Lysine has pretty much ended the Abreva buying spree.
Cold sores are the bane of my existence and have ruined more than a few occasions for me. So anything I can do I will try. And trust me, this really works. If you have stories or remedies you would like to share, please leave a comment or email me.
