Im currently taking valtrex 1 gm and sometimes lysiene... is there anything else out there to lessen the mouth ulcers/herpes virus? its very painful to eat and drink thanks
I have had recurring mouth ulcers for 20+ years now. After years and years of research on this I have found that daily Lysine, at least 1000mg, avoiding certain acidic foods (oranges, pineapple, raw onions, peppers) citric acid- IS IN EVERYTHING, cinnamon gum, chocolate, using Biotene toothpaste (or one without sodium lauryl sulfate) help tremendously with lessening the outbreaks. If I skip the Lysine they come more often. I don't have herpes so not on Valtrex. My ulcers are usually tied to things I eat or use in my mouth. I still don't know all the triggers after all this time! I just avoid the ones I do know about as best I can. Still searching for answers...
