I did get results pretty fast. If you've seen some improvement but still have peeling, it might be worth bumping it to 3000mg (and I'm assuming you're taking the high dose "stress" formula B's). If you haven't seen any change at all, it might be time to move on to something else.
You could try a higher dose of lysine (3000mg to 4000mg is not unheard of), but we know that no one thing has helped everyone. Like I said before, Lysine's fairly inexpensive and worth a shot but I don't want to promise it will work if you just take enough of it.
