Is there a reason that my Dr insists on seeing me each time I have a cold sore? The pharmacist said it was a good way for the drs office to get money from the visit. Im 100% sure what a cold sore is and when its coming. Its more beneficial for me to have them on hand for when I know one is coming so having a large supply on hand for those times is a neccesity. Is there anything that I can take to my Dr to show her that theres no laws around this... I feel that they are using every excuse in the book to not give more than 4 at a time and its really frustrating me. How would she like to have to come to work and have a huge cold sore on her lip... no matter what it is, theres a stigma about them and they are not pretty AT ALL and in fact they are very painful.
