Dr. Christian:
There’s absolutely no need for people to feel embarrassed because believe me, I’ve seen it all before.

Why have you just come to see me now about this..?

I’d hate to see what could develop under his foreskin if it was left…

It is quite likely you may have something. If you come and see us we’re not going to chop it off but if you don’t, it might fall off by itself…

But your results are, quite frankly, shocking…

There are certain parts of our bodies that we don’t talk about but when they go wrong, we should…

You’ve got away with it…

People would rather suffer in silence then get these things treated and that’s ridiculous in this day and age.

hi, my face keep coming up in a horrible red rash, which also produces dry skin and flakes off where the rash is. Could you help me by telling my what this condition is and how it can be treated please ? P.S, i have tried almost every cream available on the market and none of them have worked for more than a day or two as it just comes straight back again.

I recently had a baby, (about 4 months). I had a child previous (five years prior). With the first baby i developed a hernia right above my belly button. After having the second child its made the hernia uncomfortable and a lot bigger. if im standing it looks like i have a tennis ball sticking out of my stomach. Its becoming more and more uncomfortable and im worried that if i strain too much it will burst. I had a hernia surgery prior to my first child and was told that if i have another surgery on top of that one that it could be quite complicated and might not work. Should i go through with another surgery? PLEASE HELP as i am very uncomfortable with my body because i can not wear anything fitted to my stomach because i have this bulge sticking out which looks ridiculous. If you have any information for me please let me know.

Hi, My partner recently visted hopital for Gentic test for cancer gene sinve seeing it on you show the other day. She is 29 her monther developed breast cancer at the age of 32 and died aged 38. They have refused to do the test on the NHS and has now had to pay £500 for the test. They say she is not high risk, what exactly is high risk then? Also if they are saying that the test will be inconclusive due to not having a living relative why are the happy to take the £500 for private test. Is there anything we can do, to get the NHS to pay for this I think it is disgusting they are refusing treatment to what I believe is someone who is high risk. Thanks Mark

I am sixteen years old and have suffered with little bumps all over my arms and cheeks of my face. I have been told that this condition is known as Keratosis Pilaris. I have tried many creams and scrubs that have been recommended to me by dermatologists as well as people with KP. I am yet to find a cure or even something that really works well. I am really self conscious because of it and I almost always wear a long sleeved shirt. Does anybody know what I can do to help it?
