Was very run down and as a result cold sore popped up! Day after the tingling it was huge! Searched the web and found Lysene. Used Lysene supplement and ointment. OMG, what a relief. Will never buy expensive creams. Swelling went down after a couple of hours and the next day, half of the yellow scab came off on its own. Very pleased with it.

I have taken a preventative dose daily for years. I rarely get cold sores anymore. On the off chance I feel one coming on I up my dosage to 3000 mg per day till the tingling in my lip subsides and the cold sore never materializes/
