Acidopholis. I'm sure I've spelled it wrong but can't find my bottle. While Fever Blisters are a result of the virus the outbreak is likely triggered by an imbalance of intestinal enzymes. At the earliest sign of an outbreak I start taking this and it shortens or stops the blister within a couple of days. Lysine has never worked for me.
Naturally I'm not a doctor and am not giving medical advice but ask a pharmacist if this will work - that's where I got the information.
