i went to see a doctor today because my mouth ulcer was looking less like an ulcer and more like a cold sore. i examine my ulcer everyday and is disturbingly fascinated with how it changes when it comes in contact with toothpaste, food and water. sometimes, it breaks into numerous white dots. sometimes, it is one big wound. it bleeds every morning and white stuff flows out of it everytime i brush my teeth. it doesn’t help that is it also crusty and that my lips swells up every morning.
it just looks terrible.
the doctor looked at my cold sore and prescribed me with anti viral drugs which has to be taken every 3 hours, 5 times a day. i have to take this for 5 days. pills and cream was also given to reduce swelling and speed up the healing process.
i was the only patient at the clinic. i exclaimed HAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! in horror when the clinic assistant told me the bill is $101 – i exclaimed so loudly the doctor came out of the consultation room. haha.
so damn expensive.
