    This is the only natural remedy I have used and can say works for sure. I take two tablets at first tingle of the sore and several through the day until in healing phase. I use as preventative if I am sick or run down. Note that the tablets will not work if the product is expired. Possibly they are also less effective if not stored in the fridge.

    I used to be plagued with cold sores on my lips until a nurse advised me to take lysin. That was 7 years ago and I have never had a cold sore since. Take one tablet daily. No side effects whatsoever. Wonderful product!

    Lysine has been great for me, I used to get outbreaks every other month but then started taking it daily and they stopped, BUT these are dangerous to take too much a day! Only take them if you sense one coming on or if you have one, taking it daily can do a lot of damage to your kidneys and cause you all kind of problems! Now I only take 1000mg if I sense one and it doesn’t show, I know they reall ... Show Full Comment

    As preventive to cold sores. Controling lysine and arginine rich food intake also helps. To prevent cold sore outbreaks arginine should never be consumed in excess to lysine.
