I'd be careful using L-Lysine ointment on your tongue. It's meant for sores
and ulcers. How long have you had the sore on your tongue? Is the sore
on top of your tongue or underneath your tongue? Just wondering. Eve
It's been there about 4 months. I had to have a tooth pulled in the very back which couldn't be repair with root canal. It was cracked in 4 places. I think it threw of my bite off, It's on the side of my tongue. Good news though, since I've been using the lysine pills its far less painful. I actually this it will go away. lysinesore
Glad to hear your tongue is getting better. Eve
Lysine is usually only used for cold sores, which is a virus, for it's anti-viral effects. I don't know of it having any healing properties for what sounds like essentially a cut. You might try some aloe vera on it, as it's palatable and won't irritate anything.
