Caro visits Dr Christian at the clinic. For eight years Caro’s eyelid has been closed over.

This condition is essentially an overgrowth of blood vessels and can occur anywhere in the body. It’s very rare in the eyelid. Treatment is highly risky so close to the eye, so Dr Christian sends Caro to Mr Omar Durrani at the Birmingham Eye Hospital for more tests. Mr Durrani presents one option as being major surgery that would solve the problem but runs a 30% risk of damage to Caro’s eyesight. Caro goes for an angiogram from Dr Saleh Lamin. The procedure shows that her AVM can be treated without major risk to her eyesight, so Caro can now make a decision about what course of action to take, without the stakes being quite so high.

When Dean first came in to see Dr Dawn he’d been struggling with a bowel problem for over a decade. He’s been spending a total of 3 hours every day on the loo, answering the call of nature ten or twelve times every single day. Worryingly, he’d also been passing blood every time. After a quick examination, Dawn sent Dean to get a gastroscopy – the inserting of a camera into his stomach in order to investigate the problem. With nothing untoward reported Dean had a similar procedure, this time with the camera inserted anally, followed by an ultrasound. It’s this final test that revealed the root of the problem. A fistula on his anal canal had been disrupting the operation of his sphincter muscle. Rather than going under the knife Dean was referred for a course of biofeedback treatment, designed to retrain his bowels through a series of exercises and dietary improvements, coupled with a course of anti-diarrhoea tablets.

Episode 10 - 4-08-2011
When Maria first came visited the clinic in 2009 she was very embarrassed about the excess hair she had developed on her face and back. However, this was not just a physical problem for Maria, as this embarrassing hair growth has caused her problems at school and had severely knocked her confidence. After Dr Pixie referred Maria to a specialist, she found out that she had polycystic ovary syndrome, a condition that needs to be controlled with medication for life. Thankful that the cause had finally been identified, Maria was still anxious to have her hair removed as quickly as possible whilst waiting for her treatment to take effect. She was treated with a series of laser treatments to remove the hair and to stop it from growing back, and over a year later the results are amazing. She is now a lot more confident and now feels she can talk to people without feeling embarrassed. 5% of men are more likely to check symptoms that are worrying them on the internet, than they are going to their GP. Thankfully, Ed put aside his embarrassment to see Dr Christian at the clinic with his penis problem. After losing 19 and a half stone in weight, Ed had been suffering from a buried penis which made having sex and going to the loo very problematic. After seeing a surgeon, Ed had the excess skin removed from around his penis and 6 months later, he is visiting Dr Christian to give him an update on his condition. Ed is very happy with the results, and his confidence has 100% improved. But Ed is still having problems with his penis after his operation which he would like sorted out. Ed is having problems when he has an erection due to the tight skin around his penis. Dr Christian identifies the cause of this as the scarring Ed has from his previous tummy tuck which has caused the skin to tighten. Dr Christian advises more surgery to address this problem, but stresses that although this is a routine procedure there are always risks involved with any operation, so any decision has to be thought through carefully. To help women get their breast troubles off their chest, Dr Dawn and Dr Pixie set up a special breast awareness mobile clinic. Leah visited the clinic about the discharge and pain in her breast and although Dr Pixie said this blockage was not cancerous, Leah was absolutely right to get it checked out. Breast cancer comes in many forms with the symptoms varying from woman to woman. The main symptoms of breast cancer are lumps, orange peel skin and inverted nipples but any changes in your breast should be looked at. 1 in 8 women are likely to develop breast cancer, and these figures are on the rise so it is important to self check regularly and go to your doctor early if you have any concerns Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in men in the UK. When Richard came to see Dr Christian he had just been diagnosed. After having a case of prostatitis, Richard’s doctors found out that he had prostate cancer despite displaying no symptoms of the disease. A few weeks after seeing Dr Christian, Richard had key-hole surgery to remove his prostate and after the analysis on his prostate, he was told that his cancer has not grown outside the prostate. 15 months later, he visits Dr Christian again to tell him that he has been suffering from erectile dysfunction and incontinence after his surgery. But with this operation, it can take up to two years to fully recover, so with time and patience Richard should see an improvement in these symptoms.

Enter Dr Dawn, who takes a swab from his leg and predicts that hospital treatment will be needed. Professor Val Edwards-Jones identifies the staphylococcal aureas organism in her analysis of the sample. While this explains the smelly discharge from Russell’s leg, he is referred to an immunologist to try and establish the cause of the problem. Russell sees an immunologist and a dermatologist, who determine that pyoderma gangrenosum syndrome is responsible for his leg ulceration. Immune cells have been attacking Russell’s skin and the condition has been complicated by his poor immune system being unable to deal with the added bacterial infection. Russell is told that there are probably only around 30 people in the world who have had this problem. He goes into hospital for two weeks, followed by six months of injecting antibiotics at home.

Around 300 babies are born with this condition in the UK every year but not all cases develop tumours, with many sufferers instead developing a large number of cafe-au-lait spots. The very large tumours that Oisin has developed are very rare and only happen in extreme cases of neurofibromatosis. Unfortunately, this condition has no cure but Dr Christian refers Oisin to a surgeon who can remove his tumours, but these will grow back over time. This operation is also not without its risks.

This week the Embarrassing Bodies team are scouring the beaches, both home and away, to find some embarrassing beach bodies. First into Costa del Sol’s Clinic is Russell whose huge hernia stops him from enjoying the summer sun. A hernia happens when an internal organ pushes through muscle weakness. In Russell’s case his intestine has pushed through his abdomen culminating in a large lump on his tummy. Russell is advised by Dr Dawn to have surgery to put things back where they should be, this is done through physically pushing the protruding intestine back through the muscle wall and repairing and strengthening the hole so the hernia doesn’t come back. 26 year old Hazel’s rare condition has her worried about her chances of having a baby. Hazel suffers from Uterus Didelyphys, or double uterus, where she has two wombs, cervixes and a partitioned vaginal opening. The condition affects 1 in 3000 and can cause complications during pregnancy such as higher risk of late miscarriage, breach birth, premature delivery and bleeding throughout pregnancy. Hazel is ecstatic that her fertility is not affected by the condition. Bucking the trend which states that 64% of men are too embarrassed to see a doctor about their problems, 24 year old Emanuele, visits the clinic to see if Dr Christian can do anything to help his warts. Emanuele is worried that the warts on his hands are spreading to his penis, although after a quick check Dr Christian confirms that these are in fact pimples which are incredibly common, but if you are worried about anything on your penis please have it checked out. To remove the warts on his hands, Emanuele, is sent for laser surgery to zap the warts and scrape them away. Although the wart virus cannot be cured, this hopes to cure the outward symptoms. 500,000 adults in the UK have trouble controlling their bowels. The problem is most common in over 65s, with 1 in 100 affected. 68 year old Anne has suffered a rectal prolapse which makes it extremely uncomfortable for her to walk or stand, and has caused her to be incontinent. Anne is sent for keyhole surgery to cure the prolapse by inserting a mesh strip which replaces the weakened muscle in supporting the rectum. The two and a half hour procedure was a success and has also cured Anne’s incontinence. Back to the Costa del Sol and it’s sun, sea and…STIs. 20% of 16 to 24 year olds on holiday have sex with one new partner, and a staggering 61% don’t use a condom. Our top 3 most popular STIs are 1. Chlamydia; 2. Genital Warts; 3. Herpes. We test out some of our young Brits abroad to see if they are harbouring the difficult to spot, but easy to treat Chlamydia virus. 7% prove positive and are put on a course of antibiotics, for the rest it’s relief but also a reminder to always use protection.

The first case for this episode was Ed, who dropped into the clinic to see Dr Christian about an embarrassing problem that was preventing him from having intercourse. Losing 18 stone and undergoing a tummy tuck had left Ed with a vast surplus of excess skin and fat in his groin, almost completely burying his penis and thus limiting his ability to function sexually. Dr Christian sent Ed to a surgeon for further discussions, and he advised a procedure that would lift the excess skin up, effectively freeing the shaft of Ed’s penis which was buried under the folds of excess skin. Having undergone the surgery Ed returned to show the marked improvement in his condition.

These symptoms were having a severely negative effect on Bridgid’s life – even causing her husband to sleep in a different room. After consultation with specialist Dr Slack, Bridgid’s previous notion that a hysterectomy would fix her problem was proven to only solve part of her discomfort. After further discussion the decision to prescribe a series of injections relieved the symptoms dramatically, however they can only be taken temporarily. Bridget is still consulting her doctor in regards to the best long term treatment options available to her but was feeling far less discomfort and was much happier.

Episode 11 - 7-01-2009
The doctors are back in the clinic to check-up on some of the most interesting cases that they’ve encountered over the past 2 years. First up is a visit from fifty year old Jackie, who was suffering from one of the commonest problems seen by GPs – urinary incontinence. A staggering one in five women over the age of 40 will suffer from the condition. Fortunately there was a simple solution to Jackie’s problem, as tension free vaginal tape was added to support the bladder and replace the muscle that she has lost as she got older. The doctors also caught up with 72-year-old Bryan, who had been suffering for over 10 years with a painful problem with his penis, a direct result of a circumcision that hadn’t gone to plan. Bryan is packed off by Dr Christian to have a second circumcision carried out, and returns to the clinic two years later to check that Bryan is still firing on all cylinders following the opp. Dr Dawn next sees a patient whose life was literally torn apart by the birth of her baby boy. Debbie’s vagina was so badly torn during the birth, that the muscles around her bladder and rectum were causing her to leak urine and faeces. After a massive reconstruction operation, Debbie returns to see Dr Dawn, who is delighted to see that she is feeling just like a young mum again. Our next patient is Rachel, who has suffered from plaque psoriasis for over 11 years. Rachel’s skin cells were reproducing every 2-6 days, which compared alarmingly to a normal person’s rate of every 3-4 weeks. Christian sent Rachel for ultraviolet light therapy, which even after a few treatments was starting to show positive signs. Returning 18-months on, Rachel’s skin is vastly improved and her life has completely changed. Another patient who returns to the clinic was Martin, who has undertaken a course of cognitive behavioral therapy to help him to get over his fear of taking a pee in public. Fortunately Martin’s therapy has been a success, and he’s making fantastic progress. Next there are visits from Dr Christian and Dr Dawn to the men of Moseley Rugby Club and a group of women who have shame in baring all. They’re shown how to self-check their balls and their boobs, and you can too by going to our How to Check Yourself guides >> Boobs were a problem for Alison, who after 20 years of suffering awful back pain from her double J boobs, came to visit Dr Dawn to see if she could get something off her chest. After surgery that removed a kilo and a half of breast tissue, Allison returned to the surgery with a new lease of life. Dr Dawn caught up with Adel, who came to the clinic with a condition called polycystic ovary syndrome. This has resulted in Adel developing excess hair on her face and body, so Dr Dawn sent her off for a course of lazer treatment. Eight months later, Adel is back in the clinic and showing a fantastic improvement. Though the hairs will continue to grow back, she now knows that she can keep the condition under control… And our final patient also came into the clinic with a breast related problem, this time caused by an earlier breast reduction that had left her with artificially high nipples now that nature was taking it’s course. Flattening of the nipples was also a cause for concern for Dr Dawn, so Jacqui was sent for a mammogram to check their was nothing sinister afoot. Fortunately there wasn’t, and she was able to return to the clinic to show how a hydrolonic acid lift had been plump up the breasts and bring the nipples down back to where they belonged.

The doctors are back in the clinic to check-up on some of the most interesting cases that they’ve encountered over the past 2 years. Dr Dawn asks Scotsman John back to the clinic to update her on progress with his treatment for the disfiguring condition Acne Keloidalis. It had left John with painful nodules on the back of his head and some severe scarring, forcing him to not go out in public without a baseball cap. Thanks to some extensive treatment from Consultant Dermatologist Dr Sunil Chopra, John’s condition has improved beyond all recognition, leaving him with a full head of hair and brimming with confidence. Confidence, or lack of it, was what drove 16-year old Nathan to visit the EB clinic with some severe pubescent acne. With home treatments not proving effective, Dr Dawn referred Nathan for hydra-dermabrasion, a procedure that removes impurities and lessens the scarring caused by acne. Following treatment Nathan’s acne: has improved dramatically, ensuring that he can hopefully avoid the painful physical and emotional scarring that it can cause, something that another of Dawn’s patient, Haileigh, knows about only too well. Haileigh has suffered with severe acne for 28 years and it has left her with deep, pitted scars all over her face. After over a year of intensive skin treatment, including lazer resurfacing and dermal injections, Haileigh is showing considerable signs of improvement. A patient whose life has been totally changed by her treatment by the Embarrassing Bodies Doctors was Dionne, who arrived in the clinic with a mystery skin condition that numerous specialists had failed to diagnose. Dr Harper suspected that it was a condition called Ichthyosis, where her skin was becoming dry, scaly and cracked. Having treated her condition with a prepared solution of Cetraben, Culmurid & Eucerin, combined with wrapping in cling film, Dionne is problem free and only occasionally has to repeat the treatment to prevent future flare-ups. Dr Christian also catches up with Anna, who came to the clinic with extremely deflated breasts following her pregnancy. With her confidence low Dr Christian sent her for a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon to discuss a breast augmentation operation. Having decided to go ahead with the surgery, Anna returns to the clinic to report that her confidence has skyrocketed since the operation, making the extensive surgical risks worthwhile on this occasion. Another patient who’s back in the clinic is Pamela, who came to see Dr Christian with stress incontinence, a very common problem that affects millions of women in the UK. Pamela’s case was extremely severe, so Dr Christian recommended a botox treatment that would treat, though not cure, her overactive bladder. Having successfully undergone the treatment, Pamela returns to let Christian know how she’s been getting on, and though the results were not permanent, she has seen a massive improvement. 34-year old Sophia came to the clinic with a skin condition that Dr Pixie diagnosed as hyper-pigmentation caused by excessive hair growth. Having undergone lazer treatment and glycolic peeling, Sophia returns to the clinic to show a marked improvement in the colour and severity of her condition. Finally, Dr Christian sees a patient who decided to undergo a testicle implant operation to balance out his balls after losing one of them to testicular cancer, and also caught up with 13-year old Anthony, who was suffering with gynaecomastia, brought on by puberty and some excess weight. Dr Christian is delighted to see that Anthony has shed over 2 stone in weight, and is well on the way to getting his problem off his chest.

Episode 8 - 6-03-2009
First up, is 26-year-old David whose rotting, bleeding, puss-filled armpit has left him unable to lift up his arm without tearing the skin. The problem is diagnosed as Hidradenitis Suppurativa, a condition in which the sweat glands are blocked up, infected and develop into boils. Dr Christian sends a swab sample for analysis to reveal the bacteria infecting David, in order to prescribe the appropriate antibiotics. In the meantime, David is told to take steroids to help contain the symptoms and has been referred to a surgeon to see what can be done about the damaged skin. The EB Bus heads out to Cambridge, and first to see Dr Pixie is Lucy who has a problem growing hair, whilst Dr Christian sees a 3-year-old that has problems staying on her feet. Meanwhile, Dr Priya meets a footballer whose passing is not being helped by a curling toe. Next up there is David who consults with Dr Christian about pains in his penis and lower back. Believing that the pain is stemming from his nerves, Dr Christian recommends acupuncture treatment. Dr James meets 35-year-old rocker Neil whose teeth are hanging on by a thread as a result of advanced gum disease. Dr James saves many of Neil’s teeth by restoring them with porcelain crowns, but the teeth that couldn’t be saved have to be replaced with dentures. The doctors hit the streets of Cambridge to conduct a breath test and teach the locals about better oral hygiene. Wendy has been suffering from bad breath and heads to see a specialist that finds the root of the problem – gum disease. If you want to find an NHS Dentist in your area then use the NHS Service Finder Visiting the clinic next is Stacy, who has a problem with piles. Dr Priya examines Stacy and discovers that she’s also suffering from skin tags. As other treatments have thus far failed, Dr Priya suggests a visit to the surgeon to have both the skin tags and the piles removed. There is also a visit from Allison, a newlywed from Lancashire who is experiencing pain during sex. Dr Pixie’s examination doesn’t reveal anything sinister with Allison’s body and so she recommends psycho-sexual counselling to try and get to the root of Allison’s problem. Next up we see 24-year-old Holly who has come to see Dr Pixie about her sweaty palms. As botox injections are ineffective for palmar hyperhidrosis, a procedure utilizing electric currents is suggested. Holly’s iontophorisis treatments show significant improvements and the good news is that she can get a machine at home to continue with these treatments on a permanent basis. And finally, after conducting a sweat test after his own workout, Dr Christian meets up with the Cambridge University boat race team to calculate their sweat rates and help work out how much water they need to keep themselves healthy and hydrated.

Marissa suffered with acne on her face and forehead, and despite 9-months of antibiotic treatment, she is still suffering from the dreaded spots. Dr Dawn suggest a course of photopneumatic therapy, where a lazer and a vacuum are used to loosen and extract dirt and excess oil from the skin. Following three courses of treatment, Marissa was feeling a lot happier. Many people think that sunbathing is a cure for acne, but too much sun can be extremely dangerous, and in our Teenage Bodies series we investigated a growing problem of ‘tanorexia’ which had led 16-year-old Sammy Jo to spend far too much time on the sunbeds. On a revisit to the clinic, Sammy Jo has revealed her addiction has now switched to the bottle – but fortunately it’s a bottle of spray tan. 26 year-old David came to the clinic with a massive amount of excess skin that was leftover from his overweight teenage years. David underwent surgery to remove his man boobs, and the results have left him with not only a flat chest, but a new lease of life.

After 26 years of suffering, Dr Pixie decided to send Richard for surgery to get rid of them once and for all. Next into the Doctors’ mobile clinic is 16-year-old Wendy, who after recently giving birth has been left with severe stretch marks on her tummy. Vitamin E creams and Bio Oil are recommended by Dr Pixie as a way of reducing the marks that will also fade over time. A case of excessive sweating has left one woman feeling extremely embarrassed, but Dr Christian reassures her that there are multiple treatments available for this common condition. EB Dentist Dr James Russell has a case in his surgery involving bulimia sufferer Harriet. Self-induced vomiting has left her with acid erosion on her teeth, shortening and eating away at the enamel. Porcelain veneers can be used to extend and protect her remaining teeth, but Harriet decided to wait before proceeding with the full treatment. 18-year-old student Clare has come to the clinic with some problem bowels that mean that she can go a week without passing a stool, but this is swiftly followed by excessive diarrhoea and stomach cramps. Dr Pixie excludes the possibility of haemorrhoids, but decides to send a stool sample of to be analysed. Having eliminated all other possibilities, Dr Pixie makes a diagnosis of IBS. Next through the clinic doors is Alan, who has been battling with erectile dysfunction for nearly 10 years. Dr Christian recommends that Alan starts by losing some of his excess weight, before he is sent off to a specialist to check out the problem. The specialist recommends a number of possible non-surgical treatments, including a penis pump. Dr Pixie sees a patient with an enlarged stomach whose GP has already eliminated a number of potential conditions. Despite losing weight Stuart still has a large belly, and so is sent for an ultrasound scan. The results of the scan are inconclusive, suggesting that dietary and lifestyle changes are the best course of action. Dr Priya sees a patient who’s complaining of pain in her vulval area, which appears to be caused by the condition vulvodynia. Over 15% of women suffer from it, but over 50% of these sufferers don’t seek help. Finally through the clinic door is veterinary nurse Terry, who’s suffering from a condition called “Paprika Staining”: on his legs and ankles that leaves him with rust coloured marks. Dr Christian reassures him that there is nothing to be worried about, but there is also unfortunately no cure… Also this week, Christian and Pixie hit the streets of Newcastle to discuss Erectile Dysfunction, whilst Christian puts himself, and his sperm, under the microscope, whilst also investigating the growing problem of fake pharmaceuticals, particularly targeted at ED sufferers.

Dr Pixie sees Donna, who has a patchy rash on her back that is diagnosed as shingles and Dr Christian deals with Arthur who has a disfigured fingernail due to an accident at work. The doctors also check random samples from passengers to test for bacteria and bugs that have travelled with them. Back at the clinic, 44-year-old Stuart thinks that his holiday is responsible for the constant burning at the end of his penis. Dr Pixie believes an inflammation of the prostate, caused by a possible bladder infection, may well be the reason for Stuart’s troubles. He’s sent for a visit to a specialist and a treatment involving a prostate massage… After the birth of her child a year ago, Kerry has begun to feel pain and bleeding with her bowel movements – and visits to the loo are few and far between. Dr Christian notes that Kerry has developed a skin tag due to a tear and sends her to a specialist. Further testing doesn’t reveal anything sinister in her bowels and the problem is pinpointed as a tense pelvic muscle. Next up is Lindsay who has had a scar on her chest since she was 7 years old. Lindsay has developed a keloid scar, possibly from a pimple or bug bite, and Dr Pixie recommends steroid injections followed with laser treatment to help flatten out the surface of the scar. In to meet Dr James is Jessica, who has suffered from bad breath for years. Jessica has been blaming her halitosis on her tongue, but Dr James reveals it has more to do with gum disease. Jessica’s inflamed gums have created pockets that help to house bacteria and plaque, a visit to the dental hygienist helps to clear up the blockage and reduce her bad breath. Back at the airport, Brendan has a spotty abdomen caused by “folliculitis”/conditions/folliculitis/ whilst a returning passenger has been bitten by bed bugs on his holiday. Dr Pixie also sees Helene who has some moles on her back that are hurting… This week’s body check sees our guinea pig group checking their moles for signs of changes and abnormalities.

She’s been losing hair in patches that take up to a year to grow back. Caroline has a condition called Alopecia, and Dr Christian gives her the unfortunate news that there is no known cure for her problem. Possible treatments to control the hair loss are steroids or topical creams that stimulate hair growth. And finally this week, Dr Pixie and Dr Christian put their bodies on the line to show how easy it is to do body checks.

The amount of hair in the area seems to be to blame, with hair filling up a pit in the skin and causing an infection to develop. The first treatment used is a lazer to remove the problem causing hair, followed by a surgical procedure to remove the infected follicles, which is full of matted hair. And finally, this week’s body check sees our guinea pig group checking their urine for signs of ill health. Dr Christian talks to them about the reasons behind the differing colours and what the warning signs are to look out for. You can take the urine test yourself here >>

Episode 3 - 4-29-2009
First through the door this week is 18-year-old Cherie who’s suffering from back pain caused by extremely large breasts. The best option to ease the discomfort caused by her gigantic 30JJ bust is breast reduction and Dr Pixie refers Cherie to a specialist surgeon to get the procedure done. Visiting the dental clinic is Richard, 27, who has painful, aching teeth. Dr James’ examination reveals that Richard’s teeth are worn down as a result of Bruxism, an involuntary grinding of the teeth. Richard is sent to a specialist to clear the decay in his gums and teeth before Dr James can restore his smile with veneers and crowns. Read Dr James’ guide to How to Look After Your Teeth > Next in is Vicky, 28, who’s been dealing with boils in her groin area. Dr Christian believes the boils are caused by a condition in the sweat glands called Hidradenitis Suppurativa. As Vicky’s case is fairly mild, Dr Christian recommends treatment with antibiotics, the contraceptive pill, or acne treatments as opposed to more invasive surgery. The EB Bus heads out on the road, and first in is Amanda who feels that she has very large labia – but Dr Pixie’s examination reveals she’s perfectly normal. Meanwhile, Sharon shows her severe skin condition to Dr Christian who sends her to a dermatologist for a more accurate diagnosis. The specialist seeing Sharon prescribes topical creams to treat her scaly skin that’s been badly sun damaged. Julie visits the clinic because her ear is flaking skin and secreting gunky liquid. Dr Priya believes July has chronic otitis externa, an infection and inflammation of the ear, and sends in some sample swabs to be analyzed. An Ear Nose and Throat specialist injects an ointment into Julie’s ears and clears up her infection. Next in the clinic to see Dr Christian is Sarah who’s been suffering from lumps around her eyes for years. The condition is known as xanthelasma and it causes fatty growths around the eyes. Dr Christian recommends that she try make-up to start with as other methods carry the risk of scarring around the eyes. Allison, 23, is suffering from a funnel chest, a common hereditary condition where the chest is sunken. Because funnel chest can affect cardio and respiratory functions, Allison is sent to see a specialist for a check-up. After positive results from her test, the specialist attempts to re-contour Allison’s chest with a cosmetic filler. The EB doctors head out to rural Staffordshire to meet with the locals and discuss their health. Dr Christian speaks with some young farmers about the perils of STIs whilst Dr Pixie gets people talking about their bowels. And finally, this week’s body check sees our guinea pig group checking their poo for signs of ill health. Dr Christian talks to them about the reasons behind the differing colours and what different shapes and consistencies can indicate.

Episode 2 - 4-22-2009
This week’s episode starts with 8-year-old Charlotte from Suffolk who’s been suffering from sore verrucas on her feet for over 2 years. Dr Christian sends Charlotte for tests to check her immune system and try and find out why the virus is winning. The tests reveal that her immune system is unable to fight the virus and so the usual treatment for verrucas will not do the job. Whilst a formaldehyde treatment produces some encouraging results, further immunology test reveal that she’s missing certain lymphocytes and the possible treatment course includes a bone marrow transplant and chemotherapy. +++UPDATE+++ Charlotte’s operation to remove the verrucas from her foot appears to have been successful and her foot is healing really well. She’s back on her bike and back to being a normal child, pending a potential bone marrow transplant. The EB bus heads to Southend, where Dr Priya has a patient with case of cold feet, medically known as Chilblains. Dr Pixie’s patient can’t stop scratching her itchy sores while Dr Christian has a customer with a permanent runny nose due to nasal polyps. Next up is a visit to the dentist for 27-year-old Lyn from Aberdeen. Lyn arrived to see Dr James because she has an addiction to fizzy drinks that has left her with missing, rotting and discoloured teeth. After extracting the rotten teeth, Dr James recommends implants, but only if Lyn will give up smoking, as it drastically reduces the success rate of the procedure. After a long day in the dental hot seat, Lyn has a new set of pearly whites. Visiting the clinic next is David, 24, from Shropshire who’s had an embarrassing swelling for more than half his life. None of the treatments and tests have been able to ease his enlarged sore lips. Dr Pixie suggests that the swelling is a possible sign of an allergic reaction. Tests reveal that David is allergic to cinnamon and a long list of preservatives; so he sets off in search of a new diet. The doctors head to a very windy Southend-on-Sea to meet with a group of kids and their parents at Fairways primary school. Dr Pixie talks to the kids about head lice and shows them up close just how nasty they can be, whilst Dr James teaches the kids a lesson about tooth decay. Read Dr James’ guide to How to Look After Your Teeth > Maria, 13, believed she had a case of head lice, but it turned out to be much more serious. Maria actually has scalp psoriasis that causes her scalp to scale and nothing she’s tried has helped. Dr Pixie sends Maria to a hair specialist to get the scaling and inflammation under control with the help of creams and steamers. After three visits to the hair specialist Maria comes back to the clinic and shows Dr Pixie her much improved scalp. Ever since 43-year-old Sandra from Derby gave birth she’s developed a rather messy problem. Sandra experiences problems with her bottom – it bleeds and causes problems for her hygiene. Dr Pixie diagnoses Sandra with skin tags and sends her to a specialist to try a surgical procedure to clear up her problem. Tests show Sandra’s problem goes deeper than just the skin tags – she’s suffering from a case of rectacil, where her bowel is misshapen. Sandra will have to complete more tests, but pelvic floor exercises have been recommended to help her cause.

Episode 1 - 4-15-2009
Dr Christian Jessen and Dr Pixie McKenna – the nation’s favourite doctors for those toes curling embarrassing conditions are back – and now they’re joined by A&E Doctor, Dr Priya Manickavasagar and leading cosmetic Dentist, Dr James Russell – between them they’ve got every orifice covered. This week’s episode starts with a visit to the clinic for 21-year-old Rebecca. She’s always had noticeably asymmetric breasts (in common with many women in the UK) but pregnancy has accentuated this problem and left her with a severe imbalance. Dr Pixie sends Rebecca to a specialist to see if anything can be done to rectify the problem. The specialist performs a surgical procedure to give Rebecca more balanced and symmetrical breasts. Next through the clinic doors is Mark, who’s firing on all cylinders – but unfortunately he’s firing blanks. As a long-term diabetic, Dr Christian suspects this might be connected with his erectile problems, but first sends him for a check-up on his prostate. Tests reveal that damage to nerves is causing a condition called retrograde ejaculation, where the semen is entering his bladder instead of leaving through the end of the penis. In our truck stop Dr Christian sees a case of neuroma, an overgrowth of nerve tissue that is benign, but can be removed surgically if necessary, whilst Dr Pixie sees a patient who is suffering from keloid scars, which are sadly too far developed to be treated effectively. There’s also a case of a birthmark on the tongue, and an instance of melasma that has lead to an overgrowth of pigment on the patients face. Pixie recommends make-up to start with, before considering lazer treatment in the future. Dr Christian next sees a young lady suffering from one of the most common conditions that Doctors see – warts. Luckily Christian is able to freeze the warts off in the surgery, and with some home treatments she should be able to keep them under control herself. Our Dentist Dr James has a visit from a patient with an artistic streak, but her teeth are anything but picture perfect. Heavily decayed, her teeth need to be crowned and reshapen if she’s to recover her sparkle. After removing the decay and creating custom veneers, Dr James gives his patient a reason to smile again. Next up is Brigitte who’s comes to see Dr Pixie with a big problem. She thinks that she has an excessively large vagina that has remained even though she has lost a substantial amount of weight. Dr Pixie examines Brigitte and diagnoses her with a vaginal prolapse and excess skin around the vagina. After a visit to a specialist, Brigitte is told that there is no quick surgical fix for her problems and further examinations must be done. The doctors hit the streets of Birmingham to talk to locals about the perils of weak pelvic floor muscles and recommend exercises and remedies to regain control over these important muscle areas. The doctors persuade a group of 3 women to road test 3 different techniques for strengthening their Pelvic Floors – with some surprising results. The products tested included a Pelvic Toner, a Pelvic Floor Exerciser and Pelvic Cones. Dr Priya meets her first patient, Peter, who’s suffering from urinary incontinence after the removal of his prostate due to cancer. He’s been wearing pads and taking medication to control the symptoms, but nothing seems to be effective. Dr Priya sends him to a specialist where the consultant inserts a pump to give Peter control of his bladder with the push of a button. This week’s body check sees our guinea pig group checking their feet for early signs of an embarrassing illness, whilst Dr Pixie and Dr Priya talk to them about what they can do about athlete’s foot, corns and flat feet. And finally, the doctors put their own bodies on the line to take the fear out of simple tests. This week, Dr Pixie undergoes the latest test for HIV that reveals results instantly.

Episode 4 - 5-01-2008
Having waged war on the Vagina yesterday, the EI Docs turn their attention to the GP surgery’s most elusive creature – the ‘MAN’. From baldness to man boobs, and troublesome testicles to problem penises, the Docs are hitting the streets of Gloucester, searching for men who are in desperate need of a health MOT… In the climax to our week of specials, the Embarrassing Bodies clinic sets up camp at Gloucester Rugby Club. And it’s not long before they’ve got their first eye-watering case: a man whose manhood has been mangled by a piercing. Fortunately, Dr Harper is on hand to give some advice on how to keep it clean, before she heads out to a local pub to quiz the locals on how much they know about their health – with predictably poor results… Back at the club, the next patient who appears is suffering from the classic symptoms of an enlarged prostate. With 1 in 4 men over the age of 60 suffering in this way, Dr Jessen heads out to talk to pathologist Dr Jarmulowicz about how it affects men, and why so few know about it. This is all brought into sharp focus by 53-year-old Barry, who was struck down by Prostate Cancer 3 years ago. With his symptoms worsening, Barry comes along to the clinic to see Dr Jessen about the options open to him, including surgical removal, which carries with it the risks of incontinence and impotence. Most men would like to laugh off their illnesses, but the Docs have discovered that going bald can be no laughing matter. They’ve brought four balding blokes together to test out the latest hair loss products, including light technology; natural trichology, minoxydil lotion and even a full 6-hour hair transplant operation! Dr Jessen also gets to grips with a case of gynecomastia (man-boobs to most of us), when we catch up with 33-year-old Abdul from Tuesday’s programme, who’s looking to put 17 years of discomfort behind him. After a two hour operation (and the removal of three pints of fat!) Abdul’s very happy to show off his manly new chest. With surgery nearly over, Christopher drops in with a problem penis. The Docs decide that a chemically induced erection is the only way to find out if the problem will require a circumcision… As last orders are called at the Embarrassing Bodies bar, there’s a final patient to be seen. John’s acne had given his confidence a massive knock – but with the aid of dermatologist Dr Chopra, John was able to avoid plastic surgery and get on the road to recovery.

Vaginas
Episode 3 - 4-30-2008
The penultimate programme in our week of specials sees the EI team rolling into Norwich to set up a clinic in the heart of one of the country’s busiest shopping centres. This time the Docs are getting stuck into the Vagina, and there’s no room for coyness ladies! The first patients in the EI clinic are a group of teenagers who want to find out more about the embarrassing consequences of thrush. 75% of women get thrush at some point in their lives, and it affects everybody – from babies to grannies and a few fellas on the way through. Then there’s 42-year-old Debbie, who’s come to see the Doctors after giving birth to a bouncing baby boy. Baby Samuel’s doing fine, but Debbie’s having to deal with the embarrassing consequences of a painful childbirth that delivered much more than just a bundle of joy… The Docs are next putting periods under their medical microscopes, looking at the causes of period pain as well as the painful condition Endometriosis, where cells from the womb find their way into different parts of the body, with unpleasant consequences. We’re then reacquainted with 45-year-old Alyson from Monday’s programme, who’s all in a flap when it comes to exposing herself to her new partner. Fortunately, a consultation with Dr Pixie leads to a welcome resolution to her elongated labia. The menopause is something that every woman must eventually go through. However, the period just before that, the perimenopause, is less understood, but can be taste of things to come. With hot flushes, night sweats and weight gain among the symptoms, Dr Dawn discusses some of the treatment options, including Hormone Replacement Therapy. There’s also a case of vaginal dryness for Dr Dawn to examine as well, with a novel treatment involving a vaginal oestrogen pessary. Thanks to the treatment, Susan and her husband can resume normal service in the bedroom. Back in their London clinic, the Docs have a case of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, which affects over a third of British women, including high profile sufferers like Emma Thompson and Victoria Beckham. Jenni’s in the clinic to be rid of the hair that’s constantly appearing on her back and chest, and a course of laser treatment sees her much improved. They also have a woman whose overactive bladder is making her life a misery, but there’s a novel solution more commonly associated with the world of cosmetic surgery… Dr Dawn makes a house call on a women whose been suffering from a prolapsed rectum for years, and fortunately there’s a solution to her plight – but it’s certainly not for the faint hearted… Finally, Dr Jessen is running a smear campaign in Norwich! He’s targeting the 20% of British women that don’t attend a regular cervical smear test. And he’s not taking no for an answer…as three volunteers discover when he persuades them to have theirs done there and then!

First through the clinic’s doors is a huge pair of double ‘J’ breasts, swiftly followed by 40-year-old Alyson. After 20-years of back pain and misery from carrying around a whopping 5 kilos on her chest, she is desperate to see if Dr Harper can reduce her burden by referring her for breast reduction surgery. Former breast cancer sufferer, Cheryl, whose breast removal and problematic reconstructive surgery left her with only one breast, also visits the clinic to see Dr Jessen.

Embarassing Old Bodies
Episode 5 - 11-22-2009
The Embarrassing Bodies clinic has opened its doors for a one off special looking at the conditions and problems that affect older people. It’s a fact that we’re going to have to get used to living longer in older bodies, and the EB doctors are here to show that there’s nothing embarrassing about getting old. First through the clinic doors is Derek who is suffering from a condition that is very common in women, but is much less understood in men. The condition is called andropause, and is where a man’s testosterone levels dip, causing irritability, lack of energy and a lowered sex drive. Fortunately the condition is simple to treat using a testosterone replacement therapy. Dr Christian takes his dad with him on a visit to the clinic to find out how the body ages, as we get older. Both of them are scanned using an MRI scanner, allowing Dr Christian to compare how the body changes internally as we get older.
