I started taking lysine in the early 70's for the treatment of cold sores. Since starting on lysine I have not had a cold sore or a cold but today I was told to stop taking it because I have an autoimmune disorder. I am gutted.

This was an incredible treatment. I started using it after my cold sore had broken out and nothing was making it go away or stopping it from bothering me. Within hours it stopped the irritation, a day later it was visibly healing and within two days it was gone. I have never had a treatment that worked so well and so quickly. Absolutely loved it and will most definitely use it from now on.
