I only get a cold sore 1x every 2-3years. Felt one coming on, went to local drug store, women cashier showed me all the options, I went with Lysine 500mg vitamins and Carmex lip balm. The cold sore never enlarged and within 1wk it was gone.

has really helped me when I feel a cold sore come on. I will take Lysine and it will stop the growth in its tracks darn near. I still get one but it does not seem to fester to as big as it could.I have not taken it daily as a preventative measure, not sure if I should do so. But I highly suggest, it is amazingly helpful.
