  1. My two sons have EPP. We do not live, unfortunately near a specialist. Not one time that they have had an outbreak has a doctor given them anything for pain! Once when one of my sons was burning so bad a nurse practioner suggested I give him percocet, so she wrote a whopping 6 pills. This helped alot but wasn't near enough. They only need something perhaps 2 or 3 times a year. Not on a regular basis. When they go to the doctor's office, clinic or emergency room they are treated like drug seekers! They have never been on legal or illegal drugs. It's a horrible shame this drug epidemic does not allow people with real pain some relief. As a mother, it kills me to see my children suffer. Someone PLEASE help!
