    Hubby got a cold sore the other day, I had him put a drop of Lugals Iodine on it & it had completely cleared up by that evening.
    Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

      Last time I had a cold sore on my travels there were no peanuts or peanutbutter involved. Just apple pie and an Indonesian pasta dish. But I followed up your tip and got the Lysine in the kitchen cupboard ready for the suitcase

I do that for a couple of days and I never have a cold sore breakout. It's been working all these years. I used to take cod liver oil for them as a kid and that didn't help. Try acidophilous at the first feeling of a breakout. Goo dluck!
        I also got this in the cupboard now.. Just wondering VTX, are those 500mg or a 1000mg you take 16 of during a day?

          Another quick question: would the combination of taking acidophilous and Lysine together during an outbreak cause any harmful effects?

            I don't worry about the dosage, I just grab a bottle and take several, usually four, at a time, three or four times a day for several days. I never really checked the dosage and it's always worked when I start takeing them at the outset.

              HSV-1 virus cause cold sores which is infected when the virus is active. cold sores should not be puzzled with canker blisters which are non-contagious and which occur within the mouth, under or on the mouth or at the base of the gum area. Mostly it disturb in old age or very young age.

                I'm surprised it hasn't been mentioned--high doses of zinc are great when the immune system is stressed.

                  coconut oil is great! the lauric acid in it is super antiviral and antimicrobial. highly recommended as a home remedy
