What is wrong with my body??

Ive had cold sores since I was a kid but had only had like 3 until I turned 21...Then I started getting them CONSTANTLY..It says they are supposed to get less frequent with age but my get worse..(im 24 now) for the last 3 years I had been getting them like 4 times a this year im getting them EVERY 2 weeks almost..I can feel the tiny bump start to form so I put abreva on right away and apply it religiously ...But its the fact that im getting them almost every 2 weeks now..what is wrong with my body that my immune system is THIS shitty?? I just dont get it...Why are they getting more and more frequent?? It just stresses me out because I feel like I cant enjoy life since im constantly getting them

  • I've gotten them since I was a kid too. L-Lysine supplements help me immensely, maybe try asking your doctor if that would work for you?
