    Vitamin D keeps giving me cold sores!

    Everytime I do a mini megadose of it (only around 20,000 IU) I get a stupid ass cold sore. Three consecutive times already.

    Also, during the megadoses, I was also bit sick (which is why I took the vit D), but not enough to trigger a cold sore. Like this time it was just mild allergies.

    It can't be just coincidence.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    Maybe you should ask your vitamin d about her past sexual history.

    I get cold sores when if I feel a cold comming on but then I fight it off, or after getting sick.

    Lysine (not sure on spelling) is an amino acid you can take as a pill that's said to help prevent cold sores, but actually lysine is found in many foods. Opposite of lysine is arginine, which causes cold sores They key is balancing your lycine ratio with your "arginine" ratio. Every food has a ratio of lysine to arginine. Basicly lysine blocks cold sores, arginine lets em happen. Try and chose foods with a higher lycine ratio.

    You can google some lists, but I know that grains, nuts, chocolate and coffee all have high(er) levels of arginine, while dairy products have high levels of lycine, riccotta cheese being the highest.

    Being very basic here and all this is from a fuzzy memory, google lysine

    Drop your dose. You've reacted badly to it.

    Any large amount of anything can trigger a cold sore if you are susceptible.Your body has already let you know that it's not comfortable with such a high dose.

    Why are you taking these megadoses? Why not just a routine amount each day?

    Because I haven't taken it in a long time so I thought I'd start with 20,000..... also to try and clear my allergies which are killing me.

    Hey, maybe the content in Vitamin D tablets is causing the overgrowth of Herpes Simplex Type 1 virus in your body. You should first consult with your doctor and find out the actual contents or ingredients of your Vitamin D tablets. May be some ingredients are stimulating the cold sore virus growth every time you use those tablets.

    It is also essential for your health to boost the immune system so that your body can fight the overgrowth of Herpes Simplex virus. You should check out the best cold sore remedies at the following resource to get rid of your infection now.

    You didn't say which Vitamin D tablet you are taking. It must be Vitamin D3 and oil based.

    I take 10,000 IU D3 daily with no problems and my D3 blood level is perfect at 70 nm/ml

    Holy crapola, that's a lot of D.

    I have the beginning stages of osteoporosis in my right hip (I'm 42) and even my doctor only has me on 2,000iu's a day.

    I know you don't take 20grand a day, but still, even just once, wow!

    But anyway, I concur with Grizz, must be the oil based d-3.

    Try dropping your carbs.

    Maybe carbs are causing your cold sores.
