In case you need another reason to get motivated to stop drinking, there’s some interesting information about cold sores.

“Dr. Mindell also points out that certain foods may trigger Cold sores because they contain arginine, an amino acid that the herpes virus needs to thrive. Arginine-rich foods include cola, chocolate, peanuts and cashews, gelatin, beer and peas. So if you’re prone to Cold sores, Dr. Mindell advises that you limit your intake of these foods—and eliminate them completely during an outbreak. ”

Evidently, beer is rich in l-argine and that is going to make your amino acid off which can lead to a breakout. The body doesn’t produce lysine. I find that when I eat peanut butter I break out on my lower lip with a cold sore.
