Had Cold Sores all my life but only one at a time. Had a breakout with multiple sores

Recommended Posts

I’ve had cold sores all my life and never really thought anything about them. But this past Monday I woke up and I have at least 5 that I could see and at two others that I felt. Went to the doctor and they gave me Valtrex. I’m starting to heal now.


Was this episode something different? The most cold sores I’ve had before this episode was two. I am running myself down lately (long story). Not eating great. Is that it? Please advise. Kinda worried.

Could be stress, diet, anything that throws your body for a loop. I've recently discovered L Lysine supplements and the Super Lysine ointment. The ointment works wonders for me personally and I've prevented an outbreak as long as I put the ointment at the first tingle. The blister forms but is super small and not noticeable, looks like a pimple.


If you're on Valtrex and healing, then you're on the right track! Definitely a good idea to focus on eating good, and working out any unnecessary stressors that might be stimulating the outbreak.


Hope you feel better soon!
