I have gotten cold sores occasionally over the years, usually once or twice a year. However I have had two horrible outbreak the last 2 months in a row. I have been following TKD since Jan. Another odd note is that both times it happened the week before my period. Anyone else out there experiencing such an odd ailment? Any suggestions? Not only are they painful but they are downright embarrasing! Thanks!
I've had a similar experience. I used to get cold sores sporadically but have had 3 whoppers in ONE MONTH since going vegan. Ive read that lysine can be the problem. Maybe I'm not getting enough in my diet? I've been taking L-Lysine every day. Let's hope it works!
As for the link to my period, I hadn't made that connection, but it's entirely possible!
