trouble with coldsores
Hi Doc,
I have trouble to fight off coldsores. I've got one inside of my lip and one in my nose I use aktivar, but after a few weeks it starts all over again. I am allergic to a certain antibiotic. What else can I use to get rid of it?

Eager to hear from you soon, cause this is driving me nuts!

Darlene, you can ask your pharmacist for an amino acid called l-lysine. It’s cheap and works wonders. Good luck.
