Cuts cold sore healing time in half. Took 3 a day, one in morning, afternoon and night. My friend gave me a bottle when my bottom lip was full of blisters or cold sores after a day at the water park. It was awful and it would have lasted 10 days. The next day after taking one pill at night the swelling was cut in half. The entire lip dried up after two days and the pain stopped 30 minutes after ta ... Show Full Comment

I used to have an outbreak 3-4 times a year (usually a cluster of 3-4 blisters) I started taking 1000 mg of l-lysine every morning and haven't had one in over a year. This stuff is awesome! I did have a couple really small blisters on the interior of my lip but they were gone in a day and no one can see them so who cares :)

I don't know why doctors/dentists don't recommend L-lysine. I take 250 mg everyday (1/2 pill) and it keeps cold sores away. I used to get them almost every month. I also now use Sally Hansen's "Lip Inflation" and it keeps my lips from drying out and cracking (which probably caused the cold sores to appear over and over).

I have been taking 1000mg once a day for nearly a year and i have had just one coldsore during this time and a small one at that. I let my guard down and ate a large amount of nuts which contain arginine so its serves me right. Lysine is a wonder drug for me but I must take it every day or I get the tingle. I used to get four coldsores with each outbreak and outbreaks were every 3-5 weeks so more ... Show Full Comment

I am 21 years old and I always get large cold sores that spread and usually I get about four at a time. Lysine helps me by making my cold sores dry faster and by keeping me from getting more. When I don't take lysine I get about four cold sores when I do take it I get one or two. I love it and it works for me! I would definitely recommend it to other people, I saw relief with it you just might ... Show Full Comment
