What's the alternative? Dee Atkinson of Napiers Herbalists gives the alternative solution.
COLD sores are caused by a virus which is always within your system and when the environment is right, it appears.
This often happens when you are under stress, if you have a cold or are exposed to sunshine.
You need to boost your immune system. The dietary supplement L Lysine helps the body fight viral replication and will reduce the frequency of cold sore attack.
Combine this with Vitamin C at 2000g daily and Vitamin E at 200iu per day. This combination will support your ability to fight the virus.
I use lemon balm herb, which has specific anti-viral actions and can be taken either as a tincture or as a tea. It can be combined with liquorice and echinacea.
