She said that a couple days before a cold sore would appear she would get a tingling sensation in the area. Dr Oz had two suggestions for her. Abreva and lysine supplements. I hadn’t heart of Abreva but I’ve tried lysine supplements and yes they really do work. I’ve noticed the duration of the cold sores are greatly reduced when I take lysine at the first onset of getting a cold sore. Take 1000 milligrams a day of lysine to reduce cold sore duration time.
