That bit between your nose and lip? Your philtrum!

Interesting. I have the Boots one but I can't find it. I don't get them a lot but over summer I just got one after the other for about 8 weeks. Awful. So I'll ask my docs about this as I really do think it helps. Thanks for this post.

I must have a look for this online (I'm not in the UK) as it sounds like just the thind. i get a coldsore about twice a year, it used to be a small one on my lip, now it's a monster that goes from my lip right up to and on my nose! They are so painful, always breaking and bleeding and of course look disgusting. I've seen reviews on the Boots website mentioning how expensive it is, last time I buoght a tube of Zovirax it was $10 or more so the price seems reasonable, espeically if it works!

I don't usually have trouble with cold sores, but I started getting one a fortnight ago, and remembered reading advice to use an amino acid supplement called lysine. I looked up the suggested dosage and did 4- 1000mg tabs spaced over the day, and the cold sore was dead and healing after 6 tabs (a day and a half). I saw an online article where someone suggested why it works, but I can't remember! But I will use it again for sure.
