@goldensrbest 

I take lysine, too. I buy huge bags of loose lysine powder and mix it into things. It really helps me but sometimes I get episodes of a many sores at once. It's horrible. That usually happens when I have been stressed. The last outbreak happened when I had car problems and I had to pay a lot to get it fixed and I was without a car for a few days...I felt stranded then the sores came.

Have either of you @goldensrbest  and @SilleeMee heard about forces of nature H-balm? I used to get cold sores, but years ago I used this and virtually am cured. I would add my 5 star review for this remedy.

 

I actually use lavender & tea tree every night (ingredients in their formula), and I am sure my homemade treatment has helped in keeping me from getting anything. (I don't mean cold sores.)

No, I've never heard of that balm. I'll check it out. Thank you so much!

I have also used the ointment that contains Lyseine.
