I must have said something negative because I have cold sores galore!
They started appearing Saturday afternoon on my left, lower lip. A batch has even moved just down from my lip. I've never had them spread down before. This morning I noticed that another batch has started on my right, lower lip. I may be using a straw to drink my meals. :P
It's been some time since I've had a cold sore so I've been fortunate. They appear about a week after a stressful period, which I had last week.
I take Lysine, 500 mg, one a day as maintenance. I increase to three times a day when I have a cold sore. I use a Lysine topical cream to keep the sore moist. After they start healing, they can crack and bleed.
I understand that cold sores are common for Fibromyalgia sufferers.
