There are some people who find L-Lysine to be beneficial if they have IBD. Others do not. Each case is unique.
IBD is absolutely something you should have checked. Crohn's affects your digestive track beginning at your lips and ending at your rectum. It can
manifest anywhere along the digestive tract. The main concern is what you can't see. If it is Crohn's then you may have significant inflammation
inside your small or large intestine which, over time, becomes life threatening. If treated you will be "ok" but there is no cure at this time.
Here is what a search for lysine, crohn's, mouth resulted in. You can see on this page there are multiple references to crohn's.
There are also a few other suggestions which may be helpful.
