Lysine Caused Bad Acne for me

Recommended Posts

LivingLife77

It gave me deep down zits that took weeks to pop. I don't take it at all now. I learned it is because it is an amino acid and for me excess aa=acne.

There have been some others on here that have said the same thing. I already have acne and don't need anymore so I guess I'll just stick to the antivirals for now. Been wondering about the olive leaf stuff though. That probably doesn't cause acne right?

The Lysine helps clear up my face, I guess it just depends on your body :)

Hmm...I've been having problems staving off pimples and secondary infections around my lips...I figured it might be the way I was treating the area (keeping it dry, not touching it much, applying crap) or maybe that it was that my immune system was busy fighting H, but now I wonder if Lysine is contributing...

Wow I never put that connection together...but I think Lysine made my acne worse too. I'm on a ton of prescription meds for the acne and their efficacy varies, sometimes they work for awhile and then I have to switch to something else. Anyway, my skin has been really bad lately, and I just noticed this morning it really cleared up for some reason over the weekend...like there is a huge difference. Well, I visited a friend this weekend and forgot to take my lysine with me so 3 whole days without taking it, that might be why my skin cleared up. However, I'm not in the midst of a terrible outbreak, so I'm not sure which is worth it...

      I've had neg swabs but I am sure you'll get it. Follow the process. I haven't read the thread in exact detail, but if you have documentation of doctors mishandling your case when you get/ if you get a poss inform them in writing as well as the medical board I think.  Under diagnosis is as problematic as false pos and reducing transmission is good.

      @WilsoInAusi wish you were right.  you can't say that with such confidence having never met me though.  I had one MD look at my sore on Sunday @ 8pm, said it was not looking herpetic but to come back in the morning.  I came back in the morning and he said it looked exactly like a cold sore/HSV1 based on the changes / "ablative look" to the skin around the lip.  The Dermatologists have never seen me with a sore until yesterday, too, and had only seen pictures.  They're used to the classic HSV2 look that shows up in Google Images. I think the swab test will be definitive - we broke open the sore and sent it off within  48 hours of appearing.  I'm also waiting for my 13 week IGG type specific HerpeSelect Immunoblot any day now using RequestATest - LabCorp.

      Not really wanting to call Terry.  I'll be checking the term anecdotal as I agree it may not be the best term. Maryland University seems to disagree and there was a researcher looking into random transmissions off poss objects in the eighties.

      There are two cases of torts in the USA in regards to transmission from surfaces. These require a 50% probability in causation and would be medically confirmed. I would say the reason it is less documented as people just deal with it and get on with their lives or it happens more frequently in lower socio economic groups that all just go into denial.

      I'm collecting the less than usual experiences Wilson, and not all professionals agree with Terry. These myths in my experience do not always get around with no basis.

      The thread was more about antibodies any ways and I was just mostly sharing my experience of reading  those who claim a neg IgG. I am sorry I veered from that here.

      One person I have read here claim neg IgG. And years ago there were two people who also claimed neg IgG.

      It is up to each person to do their own research before they spend money on products.
