Instructions: First off, I owe all of this to Kristina. I have had outbreaks of cold sores since I was little and everything I did mainly was
for me to try and control it. In recent years, I have noticed that applying Chap-Stick to it has helped to keep it in check. Yesterday I awoke to a swolen upper and lower lip with about two blisters on each. I decided to get online and found this website and read some of the remedies. I didn't want to try the ear wax, tea bag or lime, and my doctor was not available to prescribe my usual remedy of Valtrax. So I decided to head out to Wal-Mart at 10pm to look into teh L-Lysine. I found the 500mg bottle for $2.82, and let me tell you, it was the best damn three dollars I ever spent in my life! Anyway I took 5 pills before bed at 11:00pm and when I awoke at 5:30am, the only remnance of the cold sore was a little swelling and a little discoloration. There was no sign of a bump or blister at all! I am still popping the pills to keep my system stabilized and I am going to take them regularly as a prevention method. But like I said before, I owe this all to Kristina and her recent posting. Thanks a million!
