Comment:
I get cold sores on the mouth as well as on the nose. I used to get one every time I was in severe sun or I would get them inside or on my nose in the winter months. What a life saver L-lysine has been. Cold sores used to make me feel embarrased and not my outgoing self. I take 1000mg daily. I rarely get them anymore and when I do, the healing time is much less than when i first had outbreaks. ... Show Full Comment

I get cold sores during or after an illness or times of high stress. Lysine is the most effective treatment with no side effects except dry mouth. Does anyone know of a Lysine pill that isn't huge and chalky? Maybe a capsule?

Comment:
I used to get cold sores on my lips several times a year. About 10 years ago my daughter-in-law, a dietitian, suggested lysine. I take a tablet daily along with other meds and haven't had an outbreak since.
