There were many mistakes in my question. I called the doctor back the next day she called in a new prescription. Called Ascend. It isn't as painful but is painful if I cover it with a bandage. So I don't bandage it until I go to bed. This sore oozes a clear liquid. Should I go to urgent care tomorrow? Or call the Dr on Monday? See if I can come in without an appt.
