hi guys. All this talk about it being a chronic condition has gotten me into a tizzy... I really do not think that it is chronic, which doesn't mean that it couldn't come back again (yikes!) but I have been feeling great for about two weeks and I am pretty sure I have beat it for now.
Anyway, Sirpreis, I just think you have to dig deep within and pull out every bit of strength that you can find. I have no doubt now that anyone and everyone can get completely healed from this. I know I didn't have it for as long as most people, so it's hard to compare my situation with someone who has had it for years. But I really think you will start seeing improvements soon. And I forgot to answer your question about zinc. I've been taking 15 mg a day, but 25 mg is probably fine, I read that many people are deficient anyway and it is necessary for cell regeneration. Go get some!! And to answer your other question, yes, I had it on both lips.
Healer96, I am so glad you are already seeing improvements! I can't wait to hear from you when you are completely better. I will have a celebration for you!
