    I came home from the beach the other day and six blisters appeared on my bottom lip. I was horrified because I had only had one blister at a time before but I guess it was way too much sun. I began my usual treatment of abreva that doesn't always do much. The next day I heard about lysine as a treatment and immediately ran out to buy it.

    I just started getting cold sores in my 40's and I find that topical Lysine (from the health food store) works just as good as Lipactin from the pharmacy. I have never taken Lysine orally, but I know the topical use works.

    I've used Lysine for a number of years, taken orally the moment an outbreak of a cold sore is noticed. Lysine stops the cold sore from developing. I no longer use anything else. It has saved me a lot of painful, troublesome and unsightly cold sores. Highly recommend it's use.

    As soon as I feel a tingle, or even after one decides to show up, pop a couple lysine and it goes away. I have been getting cold sores for 15 years, nothing else has worked. $5 for a bottle of 250 pills. I have one at home, one in my car and one at my desk. Its an answered prayer.
