I must admit that I'm concerned about your corneal herpes........potential cause for blindness. ( Is the herpes varicella? shingles)
This may be off topic, but I find that fermented foods, drinks, probiotics, etc cause my shingles outbreaks.
Also, any supplement compounded with HCL, can cause outbreaks. I'm unsure, but maybe that's why lysine didn't help me
B12 did help to an extent.
