About the Show
The Embarrassing Bodies doctors offer an innovative way to raise health awareness and de-stigmatise 'embarrassing' body parts and medical conditions
Series 3 Summary
Doctors Christian Jessen, Pixie McKenna and Dawn Harper take their mobile clinic back on the road to examine some of the country's most embarrassing bodies; from mystery rashes to sexual dysfunction and even misshapen penises.
This series introduces two brand-new strands. In a mental health strand the doctors refer patients with all manner of issues to mental health specialists to properly treat cases that range from night terrors to debilitating phobias. And 'Living With' takes an intimate look at conditions from Parkinson's to Cerebral Palsy and answers the questions we are often too embarrassed to ask.
Dr Christian meets a man with a bent penis which needs straightening out. Dr Pixie and Dr Dawn take the mobile clinic to Cardiff offering advice on flatulence. And Dr James Russell's pop-up dental clinic is inundated with nasty gnashers needing nurturing.
The doctors hit the streets of London to investigate how stress affects so many people's health and their sex lives. They also treat night terrors and problems with recurring mouth ulcers.
The doctors visit Brighton, where they get to the bottom of a bleeding anus and some pus filled tonsils. There's also advice for stag and hen parties on personal hygiene and safer drinking. And Dr Christian meets a patient who wants to have a realistic nipple after losing hers to breast cancer surgery.
The doctors head to Hull to set up a breast check clinic. Dr Christian recommends a radical new cure for piles. And Dr Pixie meets a woman who has suffered from sweaty feet for over 20 years.
Dr Pixie meets 26-year-old John, who suffers from anal abscesses. He has already undergone 11 operations and hopes the team can finally find a solution to his painful problem.
Pixie encounters an unusual case of 'fish odour syndrome'. Dr Dawn helps a woman with inverted nipples. And the clinic visits Northern Ireland, where Dr Christian gives a Gaelic football team some handy hints on male hygiene.
In Glasgow the doctors encounter a puss filled armpit and a spotty groin. And Dr Christian meets a man with a buried penis and tries to get to the bottom of penis size with the help of volunteers from a rugby team.
In Middlesbrough Dr Dawn pays a house call to a young mother suffering from post natal depression, and a young woman comes to the clinic with a problem with her genitalia.
The doctors revisit a young man who had a serious skin condition in his armpits and a woman who experienced severe pain during sex.
The doctors revisit a young man who couldn't sit down due to a painful anal abscess, and catch up with a lady whose sex life has made a full recovery from weakened pelvic muscles.
The Embarrassing Bodies team revisit more patients from previous clinics to catch up with the state of their health.
The doctors revisit patients from previous shows to check on their progress, including Brigette, who complained she had a giant vagina, and a woman with black teeth. And viewers explain how watching the series persuaded them to seek help for their problems.
In this essential aid for hard-pressed parents, taking a straight-talking approach to children's health, Dr Dawn meets five-year-old Jake, who requires surgery to correct a squint condition, and three-year-old Jeevan, whose fussy eating habits reveal a complex neurological disorder. And the doctors take the mobile truck to the family theme park at Drayton Manor.
Dr Christian meets Natalie and Mushtak who are worried that their ten-month-old baby's hip is displaced. The show also addresses bed-wetting, alopecia, unsightly warts, and meets a boy with an itchy bottom.
Dr Christian meets a young mum who is worried about her six-month-old son's mis-shapen head, while Dr Pixie consults with a boy who has suffered a violent food allergy and takes a group of parents back to the classroom for a lesson on childhood allergies.
Dr Dawn meets a four-year-old whose dribbling is causing her embarrassment at school. Also in the clinic is a 14-year-old with excessive facial hair, and a five-year-old with constipation. And Dr Christian goes back to school to teach kids and parents how to avoid piling on the kilos.
In 2008, eight-year-old Charlotte Wilson visited the clinic and was diagnosed with a life threatening condition. Charlotte needed a bone marrow transplant. This one-off film follows Charlotte and her family's emotional journey as they face the anxiety of finding a donor.
