So, it has been a little over year since I got HSV2. I am one of the lucky ones who has an outbreak every month, if not more. I think the longest I’ve ever gone between outbreaks is 5 weeks…woo!
Anyways, I’ve started to treat my body as a science expierment, to see what is actually helpful in regards to stopping/healing an outbreak. After a year, I’ve finally figured it out!
I drink it in almost every glass of water I have, every day, all day long! Now, since I’ve started drinking it (about a month or so now) I have had one outbreak BUT it was the tiniest outbreak, literally two tiny, tiny blisters that healed within 48-72 hours! All my other outbreaks have been 6-10 blisters and took 5-7 days to completely heal, if not longer.
I repeat, POWDERED L-LYSINE IS THE KEY!
I don’t find the taste to be too pungent, but if you do just add some lemon juice, can’t taste a thing. I also melted down some coconut oil and added the powdered L-lysine, stirred it up, let it set, and now use it during an outbreak or if I feel one is coming on. I’m not a doctor, but I think it helps with healing/prevention as the skin absorbs it.
Anyways, I hope if you are struggling with outbreaks you find this article and powdered l-lysine helps you too! I’ve only tried one brand so far, and I think it cost me like $15 on amazon, so maybe other higher quality brands will completely rid me of outbreaks, but for now I am sooo happy with the results I am already getting.
And remember, it’s just herpes! Or cold sores that appear on your genitals…whateves.
