    too much b12 causing fever blisters?


    well, this is basically whats wrong.

    i became a vegetarian couple months ago. so i purchased a form of b vitamin shake to supplent the lack of it from food.

    but since ive been drinking it everday, ive had about three breakouts of fever blisters all within weeks of each other. in one case they formed within days of each other...

    so now im wondering should i reduce the amount of b vitamins i take in? is too much b12 bad for you?

    Are there amino acids in the shake?
    Here's what I'm thinking: Fever blisters come from a Herpes type virus. The amino acid Lysine helps to keep the virus suppressed. The amino acid Arginine counteracts the Lysine, and can allow the herpes to become active again.

    Check if the shake has Arginine or l-Arginine in the it.
