Only thing that worked to keep outbreaks at bay was 1 scoop of specifically lauricidin with 1 teaspoon of virgin coconut oil 3x daily. If I ever miss a single dose, outbreaks will come back in a matter of hours. 2x a day is NOT enough. 1 scoop (3 grams) 3x/day.... once in morning, once late after and once at bedtime. No hot drinks with it or your stomach will hurt. NOTHING else works. Coconut oil WITH it makes a difference.
