Subject: Cold sores?

Hi all,

I am a long-time vegetarian who went vegan in March. I am very pleased with the lifestyle and feel great except...I keep getting cold sores. I have gotten then all my life, but only about 1 per year or so. In the 4 months I have been vegan, I have gotten 5 cold sores....bad ones. I am really frustrated. I eat a super well balanced diet, lots of vegetables, fruit, seeds and nuts, hemp etc. I am also taking a Lysine supplement. I don't know what gives...but I am very frustrated and don't know what to do. It's hard to win support from my family when they see a 'flaw' with my veganism...any ideas?

Thanks so much for your help!
