I've tried a homeopathic zinc ointment, but all it did was dry it out, and not as well as the calamine lotion. I've taken zinc lozenges, tried l-Lysine, tea tree oil, take my vitamins every day, and drink plenty of fluids, especially green tea. I've tried to cut down on my caffeine and sugar. I get plenty of sleep, albeit interupted by dd nursing a few times a night. I'm not even overly stressed.
The blisters have completely taken over my lips, they become swollen and red and within a couple of days get blistered all over and start weeping so bad it drips
I can't go out anywhere, as they look so bad, and I can't kiss anyone
This latest outbreak started less than a week after the last episode ended.
I think the next person I'm going to try is my chiropractor for some other nutritional ideas. I might be able to find a Naturopath in the area, but I'll have to ask around. I know something is up with my immune system, I just don't know what or how to deal with it. I've looked for natural remedies on the internet, but to no avail, in fact I haven't even found anything even close to matching my exagerated symptoms.
