Is Lysine Working…?
As I reported recently, I’ve been experimenting with Dunham’s Canker-Rid and taking Lysine. And I’d love to give you a full review of my experiences with them…
But I haven’t been getting any ulcers!
At the end of last week, I had a couple of spots show up and tried to cause trouble, but never even got big enough to start tracking. They were gone completely in a couple of days.
A similar thing happened with the last ulcer that popped up, it disappeared almost immediately.
I wanted to wait for another full-blown canker sore to test the Canker-Rid again and see how it comes out because I didn’t think it was possible that the Canker-Rid caused the ulcer to go away so quickly – just too good to be true – but I haven’t had a chance to do that. Because I haven’t had any ulcers to try it on.
That’s the funny thing about running this website. That’s a great problem to have, except I actually need to get some canker sores to try out these products!
Is it the Lysine?
I started taking it on the 18th, so it’s been a little over 3 weeks since I started. What’s happening right now is I still seem to be going through my cycles, but they aren’t fully producing the canker sores. My on-cycle always seems to start up with a feeling akin to coming down with a sore throat. You know that tickle in the back of your mouth that you always get just before you get sick? I get that. Every time. Every 10 days or so. It never really turns into an illness, but it always kicks off a round of canker sores.
I’m going to keep taking the Lysine for 6 weeks total and see if the ulcers stay away, and then if they come back when I get off of it. But right now, I can highly recommend 2000 mg of Lysine a day.
