I've read people should avoid lemon during outbreaks several time. I'm not sure why.
Lemon juice becomes alkaline when drunk so I don't think it causes any problems.
I've never had any problems with it and never heard of any of my client's complain
about it either.

You can apply a lemon slice on your outbreak. It should help if it's quite mild.
