I am susceptible to getting cold sores. I went into a health food store because I was nearer to it than a drugstore or pharmancy, and they recommended Lysine gel applied to the lips. Using this lysine gel has helped stop a cold sore for me better than any other thing I have ever done. According to wedMD, a reputable website, lysine seems to be safe to use for short periods.
