    IF, you can catch that first tingle! Grab the Lysine. Very important to go on the offense first! I nuke it, 6-8 thousand mg tablets. I don't recommend to others, but this knocks it out for me. I only use when I feel a cold sore coming on and/or combating one.

    I have had cold sores my whole life and nothing helped until I tried Lysine. I find if I take it even once or twice a week I don't even get cold sores, but if I do I just take extra for a few days and it is gone.
