E. Burnham's Lysine Ointment was formulated to heal and to significantly reduce symptoms caused by cold sores (cold sores are caused by the virus called herpes simplex labialis). Herpes Simplex is a virus that invades other cells in order to replicate new virus cells. Arginine is a type of amino acid that is stored in cells. Unfortunately, it is also the amino acid that is stored in cells used to replicate. Lysine Ointment can stop this replication. Lysine Ointment has been used to eliminate the tingling, burning, itching, tenderness and blistering of lips. No adverse effects.
Research has shown that lysine is also stored by cells and can force some of the arginine out, but lysine cannot be used by virus cells for replication. Cold sores are the result of cells that been destroyed by the herpes simplex virus, and the stinging or burning a person experiences is due to the arginine fueling the virus cells.
Arginine Acids are important for the body and are considered to be the foundation for proteins. Lysine is a type of amino acid that is beneficial to the body, but it is not naturally created in the body. It must be consumed to be beneficial. In the case of cold sores, research has shown that lysine is an effective treatment against the herpes simplex virus (cold sores).
If used at the early onset of herpes it may reduce the healing time and length of the herpes outbreak by over 50%. Reports show that the average cold sore lasts between 14 and 21 days. Some users have even reported healing in 48 hours. Our Lysine Ointment is completely invisible and can be worn under lipstick

Hats off to E Burnham. Their lysine ointment was the only thing that gave me relief from shingles and helped them go away. I have been impressed with other products from E Burnham like their face wash which I love, but heard lysine would be helpful for shingles and their product was. Thank you.
I have used lysine tablets for years to cure cold sores but have found that this product works faster--giving bottles to all my family
When used at the very onset of a case of genital herpes- it can reduce the healing time and length of the herpes outbreak by 50%, or greater. I always keep a jar on hand, the minute I feel I might have an outbreak, I apply it generously to the area, and sometimes overnight it stops the herpes from a full outbreak. This stuff is amazing.
Dear Customer Care; The gratitude is all mine. I have suffered from Herpes Simplex in my lip area since I was 11. I am now 66, an active business woman and teacher, often presenting in front of large groups, and was heartily tired of the disfiguring and painful outbreaks. 5 years ago, in desperation, I had ordered a container of Burnhams Lysine Ointment through the Vermont Country Store, who regrettably no longer carry your fabulous product. An example of how wonderful this product is: March 25th, 2013: First Night of Passover, all dressed up and steaming casserole in hand, and invited to a special dinner/seder for 26 close friends and family. As I was arriving at the host home, 25 miles from my own, I suddenly felt that horrible burning sensation on my upper lip which signals the onset of an outbreak. I called my son, who had not yet left our home town. He knows full well how important the lysine is to my health, and zipped over to my home and snatched the container from my bedside table. As soon as he entered the host home, I excused myself to liberally apply the ointment. I applied it several times that evening and before going to bed. By the next morning, the second day of Passover, only a faded, cool pink dot was above my lip, which never blossomed into the hated outbreak. Ive learned my lesson, and am now ordering multiple containers for office, purse and car. Ill never be without your little miracle again! Thank you for doing what over 50 years of failed experimentation with OTC and prescription treatments could never do: stop outbreaks in their tracks. Gratefully, Sara
I love this lysine oitment. It really does work. I get cold sores all the time for some reason. I am very happy I came across your site.
