vitamins for cold sores

4 posts in this topic

do vitamins help anyone who gets cold sores? what do you take and how often? does it help?? is there anything that is fast-acting to help speed up the healing time once a cold sore is out? Thanks for your help! I'm new to the site.

Vitamins can help your immune system which in turn fights this virus. There are other supplements you can take that go more directly after this virus. Look into taking lysine and kelp. Those both attack the virus.

Good luck!

I do a lot of intense training for triathlons. When I do, my body gets run down and I tend to get a cold sore. Pretty much every picture of me coming through the finish line is me with a beautiful looking red crusty cold sore. I would load up on lysine to try to fight the virus before a race but it never did anything. I think it was because I needed something to boost my immune system too. I always got a cold sore when my body was run down. I found a product that has both immune system boosting vitamin/minerals and virus fighting ingredients too. I take it a few days before a race and haven't gotten one since. You can check it out online at kisuhealthylips.com. That is where I get it. I haven't found it in pharmacies yet. My last picture of me crossing the finish line was without a cold sore. It is now on my desk at work in a frame. Good luck.

I was just recently diagnosed with cold sores, and I have felt so frustrated since I found out! The thought of having these ugly blisters pop up on my lips for everyone to see makes me so stressed!

I have been researching the best vitamins to take, because I don't want to have to depend on meds! I found an herbal supplement online called Prevasure, and the herbs they use have been studied and proven to fight off the herpes virus. I take this stuff twice a day, everyday, as a suppressent. So far, it seems to be working.

I also heard from another guy on this site about a product called cold sores begone. Your only supposed to use it when you feel the tingling sensation, but I always have the tingles, so I use it everyday as a preventative.

I would also suggest taking 2-3,000 mg of Lysine daily.

      It's great to have this site to ask these personal question though! i hope it has rested your mind Hayitsmay, I have always been cautious about passing my friendly H on from a dirty towel. It makes me panic if a friend needs a shower and wants to borrow a towel, I start worrying in case I never washed then at a high enough temperature to kill the H virus. These posts have helped me on my understanding, thanks WilsonInAus

      Put it this way the way people contract genital herpes is thru sex or oral sex ie a person with a cold sore give you oral sex and infected you with genital herpes.  You can however contractor infections through contaminated toilet

      Hes developing a preventative vaccine too isnt he. That will effectively stop the spread. If that is achieved then it will be like many other vaccines we get to stop us getting.illness which is what will irradicate hsv

      I got type II. I took my doagnosis very badly! I tried to kill myself. I was already lacking in self confidence and self esteem.  I'm coming to peace with herpes. I hate knowing I'm a carrier and peoples ignorance (even arrogance) towards herpes is completely shit!! I am very thankful my body has suppressed the virus and I get very few outbreaks.... Thus far. Doesn't help with the rejections I've copped because of disclosing.  Why am I here? I dunno. I guess to try to help people newly diagnosed? I don't frequent here much these days. I find talking about it sometimes makes it worse as it just reminds me of it all. As already mentioned, do find out what type it is. Each type varies a little. Lastly, yes, be very careful who you disclose to. Some people are just shit and want to gossip! Sadly the stigma of herpes will never go away. I tell people I know of a guy that just got diagnosed and how he's not taking it well. I judge their responses. Most are sympathetic and some are just pure assholes about it! A few even replied they know people with it also. It is common but for me, I'll only date someone with it. I was on Positive Singles but IMO, the site just makes money off people's misfortunes. But alas, when I'm ready to date and comfortable in my own skin, I'll give the site another go.
