Re: Never ending cold sores
I know how you feel oceanm
I was getting cold sores just like you, as soon as one would go away id get another. Its very frustrating as you know.
Definetly take lysine, it helps a bunch.
also get Releev...its an over the counter medicine like Abreeva. You can get it at rite aid or any pharmacy. It says on it 24 hour cold sore relief. It runs about 20 bucks, pretty expensive but it lasts for a loong time.
As soon as I feel a cold sore, or you can even kinda see it coming and its tingling. I put some releev on it and take 3000 milligrams of lysine. I continue to put on the releev through the day. It says you only have to put it on about 3 times a day but i really load it on, just so I KNOW its not gonna get any worse. Anyway, the cold sore will not blow up and be practically gone the next day. The stuff really does work.
I also take a multi vitamin and extra vitamin c, which prolly helps.
and I hope this helps you.
