Long before prescription medications became available to control herpes simplex outbreaks, which cause cold sores, lysine was considered a useful weapon to combat herpes infections. Many people still prefer the natural remedy over a newer prescription drug because of lysine's safety and low cost. An amino acid, lysine is not produced in the body but can be found in high quantities in milk, soybeans, lentils and meat. Uses: Primarily to prevent recurrences, and limit the severity, of cold sores.

The exclamation point at the end of "The Informant!" gives it all away. While the title may promise a straight-ahead drama, that bit of faux-jaunty emphasis shows that nothing of the sort is going on. Which is business as usual these days when Steven Soderbergh is the director. Soderbergh, who won an Oscar for directing "Traffic" and was nominated for "Erin Brockovich" in the same year, is a filmmaker as exasperating as he is gifted. And not just when he forsakes calculated crowd pleasers like "Ocean's Eleven" for doodles like "Bubble."

After chemo treatment, I had two bouts with shingles. Knowing that this is a herpes virus, I treated myself with L-lysine as I often do for cold sores. The discomfort and rash disappeared in less than a week. My oncologist was very interested to hear this and has been successful using L-lysine for other patients with shingles. Prescription antiviral drugs such as Valtrex or Famvir can be helpful against shingles. Many people say L-lysine works for cold sores.
