    Lysine seems effective to me

  • I’m a big fan of Lysine – it makes a huge difference when a cold sore is coming on. I does myself on up to 2 grams every 4-6 hours (up to 6 grams/day). Nutra-Life Lysine 1200 gram works a treat and I’m never without it. Chocolate and, to lesser degrees, coffee and strong UV exposure are definite triggers for me. I usually wear an SPF rated lip balm when in the sun.

    • Thanks for your comment Dickiesbird … it’s great to hear the the Lysine works so well for you. How interesting to hear your personal triggers too.
