    L-lysine works well as a prevention for recurrent lip sore. And a final word of prevention... Don't even THINK of kissing Kingtrumpet with all that bactgeria and fungus that is hanging on his hips. Yuch!!!!

    Thank you Mike, I will lookinto that.

    Gmonady, is lysine something I could just buy at the drug store? Is it to be rubbed on the lips or is it a pill? I've had recurrent coldsores from childhood and it seems the trumpet also helps to induce them (lip stress I guess).

    Darrien, you should be able to get L-Lysine at most pharmacies, and very likely at health food stores. I recommend the 500 mg tablets. An example of a dose often used during an active flares up is 3,000 - 9,000 mg/day in divided doses (two to three tablets three times a day) for a short period of time. To prevent recurrences, many people take 1,000 mg daily. There is really great medical evidence that the 1,000 mg (500 mg twice a day) works very well as a preventive therapy. I have had much luck using this with my patients on a personal note.

    My motto: When you can go natural... why not?

    As a side: Remember in the movie Jurassic Park they kept the dinosaurs from reproducing by holding back the L-lysine? Take enough L-lysine and it will turn you into one monster trumpet player!!

    Extra credit question: In prehistoric times, who did the dinosaur call when they had a heart problem?

    Answer: The CardioJurassic surgeon!

    My wife has these problems. L-lisine helps, but not a cure all. Abreva seems to knock them out when you feel them coming in. And if you have a full blown break out potent anti-biotics like valtrex will knock them out in 2 to 3 days.

    For the physicians out there
    What is the difference between the prostate and a gardern hose?


    There's a vas deferens!!!!!ROFL

    Get it? A VAS DEFERENS!!! oh boy I knock myself out.

    oh my faux paus!! -- I should have written that statement more clearly -- "I laugh when other people stick their foot in their mouth" -- yup, I knew doctors couldn't spell, but that has nothing to do with their reading comprehension. (same way with pharmacists) --- they are in the same "CSA intervention group" - can't spell anonimous -- group ROFL ROFL ROFL
