    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

    I have gotten cold sore for many years. They ysed to be very large and gross. I use a lysine lip balm and take 2000 mg lysine along with 2000 mg vitamin c at the first tingling and then twice a day (at bed time and first thing in the morning) for two or three days. This doesn't completely eliminate them but they are always very small. No one even notices them. The vitamin c is important. ... Show Full Comment
