OMG. Here it is again- another cold sore. I hate them so much! No matter what i try I can't seem to keep from getting them and it takes weeks for them to go away. What can I do? Does anybody know anything that is fairly cheap and can help me prevent cold sores and make the ones I already have go away? Please I need some help. I can't stand to have them any more. Thanks for your help.

Well i hate them as well. My aunt gave me some advice one day though. It seems to help. She told me that if you get some L-lysine (I think that is the way it is spelled) and take some of it when you feel one coming on then it will make it not get as bad and will help it go away sooner. I dont know if you have tried that but I have a few times and it does help.

No. I haven't tried it. I've actually never heard of it before. I will give it a try for sure. Thanks a lot.

I had never heard of it when my aunt told me about it. she got told about it from someone she worked with. After she told me about it and I had a chance i went out and got some. it has helped me.

The valtrex thing works. The dr. gave it to me. when I start feeling one coming on, I take one valtrex a day for 3 or 4 days... it's gone. it's never a huge flaming one either. it's cheaper than buying all that otc stuff in the end.....

I've tried it before. I know it works great, but I disagree with you that it is cheaper. It is way expensive. There's no way I could afford it right now.
