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.
